Dive into the Beauty of Authentic Samurai Heritage with Tokubetsu Ranking Certified Ashikaga Clan Armor

Unlock the mysteries of the past with this extraordinary original Japanese samurai armor, a testament to the prowess and prestige of the Ashikaga clan during the early Edo period. Authenticated with Tokubetsu Kicho Certification, this armor set bears the prestigious mark of historical significance. Crafted with meticulous detail, the armor features a Tetsu Kurourushinu Murasakiito Moto Agata Takeshi Mogami Dōgusoku—translating to “iron black lacquered purple thread suketei mogami dou gusoku.” The use of rare and expensive purple thread underscores the high rank of the samurai who once donned this magnificent piece. The kabuto (helmet) and menpo (facial armor), likely products of the Ichiguchi Myochin school, showcase the masterful artistry of the Edo period. Both made from Tetsu-sabiji (rusty iron finish), these components boast durability and timeless aesthetic appeal. The accompanying certification places this set firmly in the mid-Edo era, attesting to its authenticity. A standout feature of this armor is the dragon motif, meticulously crafted from light wood and lacquered, with bone eyes, adding a mythical touch to the ensemble. The family crest on the kabuto aligns with that of the Ashikaga clan, providing a direct link to the clan’s heraldic heritage. The Ashikaga clan, rising in the 13th century from the Minamoto clan, played a pivotal role in Japanese history. This samurai armor set, with its historical significance and impeccable condition, stands as a testament to the clan’s power and intrigue.
