Description

Tetsu Kurourushi nuri Ressei Bō.
We are looking at an old Menpō. We could see many Menpō made in the end of the Edo Period, it is rare to find Menpō made in early Edo period as this Ressei Bō.

A beautifully crafted Ressei Bō (Furious Power) style Menpō with two layers of iron black lacquer (urushi that is original to this piece), skillfully embossed facial contours, bold wrinkles and deep curved jaw-line, featuring a sweat hole. The interior of the mask is coated with smooth red lacquer (the red urushi had been restored). Four plate yodare-kake with black urushi.
