追加情報                                                    Additional Information

This 日本の鎧 Japanese armour is accompanied with one single 鎧貯蔵箱 armour storage box.

Because I can’t find a 指物 Sashimono (war/family flag) at the moment, I have dried some reed plumes myself and put them in the 受物Uke(d)-Zutsu (Sashimono pole holder) as decoration.

江戸中期の鎧 Mid Edo period armour (Also mentioned on the certificate)

合わせ物では無く、全てが揃いでオリジナルです It’s not a combination, it’s all original. All parts are en suite and belong together

歴史 History
