Toppai Nari koboshi Kabuto

BY LEAVE A COMMENT

No i didn’t stretch this picture by using photoshop, this is the way it actually looks..

I’m not  sure how to ‘translate’ the name/type of this kabuto because all i know is that the word Koboshi is refering to the small standing rivets on the kabuto so i assume Toppai Nari refers to the shape or are these 2 seperate words ? Who can help me out here ?

Anyway it was a late 16th-early 17th century kabuto that has been sold for a mere €26.500 / $36.500 🙂
