Samurai Ressei Mempo Momoyama - Early Edo Period 1568-1611
A beautifully crafted Ressei Men (Furious Power)style menpo with skillfully embossed facial contours, bold wrinkles and deep curved jaw-line. Odome posts are set into both sides of the menpo. Original lacquer finish is in very good condition with some minor loss. The interior of the mask is coated with smooth cinnabar red lacquer and in very good condition. The yodare-kake is finished in gold lacquer kozane and is original to this piece. This is a very rare "full" style of yodare kake. The boar hair moustache is full and in excellent condition.
