Edo period Do

Recommended Posts

A very nice Do from the Edo period in need of some tlc.  It is a very well made piece which can be displayed and enjoyed as it or be restored.

As shown in the pictures there are a number of issues.  There are spots where the lacing has decayed, two places (under where the arms would go) where the lacquer is missing and some rust has set in, the lining in the back has holes and has become detached and the armor hanger in the back is missing.  Also, the padding that goes under the shoulder and around the neck may be a later replacement. 

Even so, this is a great piece for the beginning collector to study and learn from or for the collector who is willing to undertake the project. 

Includes a rudimentary stand for display and an old armor box which is in poor repair.  The lid does not seem to match it as it is too large for it.  Even so, if the box was stabilized or restored it could be used to display the armor. 

$395 plus shipping.
