I have decided to part with this beautiful antique samurai set of armor from my collection. This antique YOROI is in excellent condition. It is estimated late Edo period (1800ish) and still remains fully functional.
It is a full set of YOROI, with all parts intact! It comes in an antique EDO period wooden box with family mon. 99% of the lazing remains intact which is rare on these old yorois. Leg protector is in decent shape, but not as good as the rest. Obi might be a new addition, but I don't know for sure.
This yoroi has featured in the Danish Television show "Bedraget". I have a large collection of antique Japanese weapons and fittings that I value and treasure. The way I collect is with the philosophy that I do not want to possess a lot of items, but I want to have had a lot and then pass them on, and in that way learn about antique Japanese weapons. I price the items high to get the best price possible as everyone does? Its logic, but as you can hear I also know that the listing price might be more than collectors are willing to pay, why I invite you all to make me an offer you feel is what you would like to pay to acquire the item.I wish you good luck - Enjoy!
