Description

A fine kon-odoshi okegawa go-mai renjaku-do gusoku signed on both the do and inside the helmet by Haruta Tokimune. The russet-iron armor is laced in dark blue and orange with components remaining untreated raw iron or lacquered black.

A Momonari russet iron helmet bowl consists of four plates, to the front a tosei mabisashi with deeply embossed eyebrows and to the rear a deep koshimaki from which is suspended a four lame ko-manju shikoro in black. A golden sun-shaped maedate surmounts the fore, and in the rear a striking gunbai (signal fan) shaped ushiro-date of lacquered wood and paper drapes over the medial ridge. Prominent fukigaeshi, on the shikoro are made to be removable for storage, and display a floral crest in gold maki-e over patterned leather.
It is signed on the interior of the bowl Haruta Tokimune. The tetsuji menpo is fitted with three-lame yodarekake. The go-mai yokohagi okegawa do consists of horizontally scalloped iron plates with a medial ridge, the munaita lacquered with mottled red over gold and fitted with a gilt-copper ring, six sections of five-lame kusazari ; and ko-sode mounted with a hinge on the shoulders.

The do is lined with red leather, and has holes in back and at the base for an adjustable interior harness. The matching sangu (kote, haidate and suneate) are backed with patterned blue silk. On the biceps are hexagonal plates embossed with cherry blossoms and bonji (sanskrit characters)
