Oda Nobunaga Japanese Suit of Armour - AH2015
Oda Nobunaga Japanese Suit of Armour
Oda Nobunaga (1534 -- 1582) played a key role in shaping the course of history in fuedal Japan. His policy of unifying a country controlled by many fueding daimyo (warlords) was furthered in a series of victories characterized by brilliant tactics and the first organized use of firearms. His unification policy became a reality under his successor, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, shortly before the end of the 16th century. Our very affordable battle armor, constructed by the craftsmen of Hanwei, is the Yukinoshita Do style, having largely solid vertical plates around the torso and incorporating all of the elements of a suit of armor of the period. The crest of Oda Nobunaga is mounted on the helment. The armor is wearable (within a reasonable size range!) and is supplied in the traditional lacquered armor box, which, along with a a wooden frame, provides the support for the stunning display.
