#4115 RUSSET IRON ‘RYUBU-MEN’

Heavy set russet iron ‘ryubu-men’ (mask of noble expression). It has a superb patina, with typical smooth rounded cheeks, small nose, and mouth. The cheeks are mounted with scalloped ‘yadome’ and pins on the jaw to prevent the helmet cords slipping. The nose is detachable. The interior of the mask is lacquered red.
