I offer a jingasa hat with crest linked to the Maeda clan. Maeda was a Japanese samurai clan who ruled most of the Hokuriku region of central Honshū from the end of the Sengoku period through the Meiji restoration of 1868. Their Kaga domain was second only to the Tokugawa clan that ruled Japan during the Edo period.
The cret is named Maru ni Umebachi 丸に梅鉢 and represent a plum flower within a circle.
Made of black lacqered pressed paper.
The jingasa (lit. "camp hat") was a type of hat worn by Japanese warriors when traveling or encamped. Ichimonji means "one crest symbol" and represents a samurai clan.
In good conditions, minor crack on the black laquer and a scratch on the top as pictures show.
Size is around 42x6cm.
Period late 19th century.
Will be sent with tracked parcel. The item is in the European Union, no hidden import taxes within the EU.
