KAWARI KABUTO (Dutta-10214)
TETSU SABIJI TORI-KABUTONARI KABUTO A extremely rare and unique bird-shaped iron sabiji helmet Momoyama - early Edo period (1590-1600), Embossed and rusted iron Height: 35.0 cm, width : 39.4 cm, length: 33.3 cm The mythical phoenix (hôô,) is regarded as being immortal, and this highly peculiarly shaped helmet is based on a so-called tori-kabuto, lit. “bird helmet,” which is used as a headdress at the bugaku Imperial court dance and music. The bugaku´s tori-kabuto on the other hand probably goes back to a mandarin duck oshidori, which – due to its beautiful plumage – is thought to represent the phoenix among birds native to Japan. The helmet consists of embossed iron plates which combine to form a forward curve in the momonari manner. This classical shape is reminiscent of Buddhist altar equipment. The plates are connected in such a manner that a central ridge-line emerges, and the tehen section, which protrudes slightly to the front, is skilfully made to represent a bird with an opened beak. Below, one finds the eyes, and the circumferential iron plates represent the bird’s beautiful collar feathers as well as the wings, which run back as the shikoro. Among bugaku dances, the Taihei-raku, Manzai-raku, the Shûfû-raku, and other variations are known to have used tori-kabuto as headdresses. At those bugaku, dancers and instrumentalists wore such tori-kabuto which were covered with gorgeous fabrics. Also the “Genji-monogatari” tells of dance performances called “Karyôbin” and “Kochô”, in which children are dressed up as mythical birds respectively butterflies. The dancers are similar to nymphs or fairies (tennyo,) flying up to the Heavens, and this explains the peaceful and harmonious sense of tori-kabuto used in such bugaku. There is a tori-kabutonari helmet possessed by the Ôyamazumi-jinja (Ehime Prefecture) which is dated to the Kamakura period. This helmet reflects very well those warriors´ yearnings for the gorgeous aristocratic culture of the Heian period, slipping this peculiar elegance into their arms and armour. Despite originating in the late Momoyama - early Edo period, this helmet tries to capture that earlier atmosphere. It displays the personal style of the Momoyama period, a time when warriors became aware of their own personality and tried to express this in their clothes and armour. During the Momoyama period, the traditional and hitherto predominant hoshi- and suji-kabuto were expanded by helmets with eboshi, tôkanmuri (Chinese crowns), zukin (hood) shapes, but interpreted as wakitate and/or maedate crests; in addition many other variations such as animals, plants and graceful ornaments appeared. The tori-kabutonari is the rarest style among all those more or less grotesque (igyô) helmet shapes.*1 This piece is made of very thin, forged iron plates, connected with a small rim along the joint which serves as additional reinforcement. The result is a complex and beautifully modelled helmet which is, to a certain extent, reminiscent of modern art. The surface is lacquered to a black and tasteful rusted appearance (sabiji-urushi), but the beak section on the central front area is lacquered red, which is very impressive. The eyes are inlayed with brass. The mabisashi protrudes sharply to the front, an approach reminiscent of a classical specimen from antiquity. The area around the koshimaki no ita is covered with a headband-like brass plate which is decorated with embossed chrysanthemum ornaments (kiku-za). The brass elements were brightly polished and shone with a light gold hue when the helmet was made. The curious and marvellous helmet construction, together with this showy ornamentation, surely made this piece an eye catcher and the figure of a mounted military commander swinging his saihai baton comes to mind. A masterly helmet, this is not only eccentric but also reflects the sophistication and aesthetic sensibilities of the warriors of that era. *1 In the “Genpei-seisui-ki” chapter, “Norimori-yume Tadamasa Tameyoshi no koto,” we read of a certain “tobi-kabuto” (lit., referring to the bird, “kite-shaped helmet.”) It is thought that this tobi-kabuto is of about the same style as the tori-kabutonari helmet. The “Genpei-seisui-ki” was compiled from the late Kamakura to the subsequent Nanbokuchô period. There is also a tori-kabutonari helmet with tiger-fur applications from the early Edo period which is said to come from the property of Oda Nobunaga. - some photos with the well made iron Menpo signed : Myochin MUNEAKIRA from the mid-Edo period (1730) (see also n.10243) price on application閱讀更多
US ARMY CIVIL WAR 1862 COLT 44 REVOLVER
Us Army Civil War 1862 Colt 44 Revolver:Cartouched cylinder scene. Serial number 35172. "C.T. Palmer" scratched on the butt. This model was made in 1862 (according to http://www.colt.com/Customer-Services/Serial-Number-Lookup) and is in excellent condition considering the age and wear.
The Colt Model 1860 Army revolver was a six shot .44 caliber revolver which replaced the earlier Dragoon pistol, which was a large and heavy gun which was really only practicable for a man on horseback (cavalry). Thanks to the Bessemer process of making steel stronger and cheaper, one no longer needed a massive gun to contain .44 caliber loads. The result was the Colt 1860 Army revolver which could be used as a side arm for an infantrymen or officer as well as cavalrymen because it was lighter and slimmer. The weight of the Dragoon was 6 pounds; that of the Army was about 3 pounds.
The Army revolver used an eight inch round barrel, which was easier to manufacture than an octagonal barrel. It borrowed the same frame and grip from the earlier .36 caliber Colt Navy pistol, but had a stepped cylinder to allow for the larger .44 caliber round. It was a single-action design, meaning that the operator needed to actuate the hammer to cock the weapon which rotated the cylinder to the next available ammunition chamber. Only then could the operator squeeze the trigger and complete the firing action. Each successive shot needed to be cocked in this fashion.
Loading was a somewhat lengthy process, with each of the six chambers drilled into the revolving cylinder being loaded from the front, or "muzzle" end. The weapon was loaded with 35 grains of gunpowder in each chamber (via a flask carried by the operator). And then a .44 caliber soft lead ball was pushed into the front of each chamber. Alternatively, soldiers could be issued paper cartridges containing both the preset amount of gunpowder and the ball bullet in a single handy container. Each “load” (by flask or paper) was then rammed home with the integrated ratcheting loading lever found under the barrel. The user pulled down on the loading lever to which an arm, acting as a ramrod, would move rearwards toward each bullet chamber and force their contents into the chamber. The action on the slightly oversized ball (.454 caliber) also trimmed some of the lead off and effectively sealed each chamber. This sealing was important to prevent ignition of the powder residue across the mouths of the other chambers. This catastrophic failure, called “chain fire,” was caused by the highly unstable black powder “jumping” from one open-ended chamber to the others. Hence soldiers usually sealed the ends of the chambers on top of the ball with wadding of lard or wax.
Explosive percussion caps made of fulminate of mercury were then needed to be placed onto the rear of each chamber on protrusions called “nipples,” hence the name “cap and ball” revolver.
Once cocked, the weapon was made ready to fire. A pull of the trigger sent the hammer down onto the percussion cap whose explosion travelled down the inside of the nipple into the rear of each loaded chamber where the gunpowder and ball were located. The user could let off six rounds without having to reload (but still had to cock before each shot.)
About 200,000 were made until production ended in 1873, with the U.S. government buying most of them. It was a standard issue weapon for the Union during the Civil War. Most of the revolvers purchased by the Federal government, as well as those captured or bought by the Confederacy during the course of the war ended up in the hands of cavalrymen. Both North and South agreed that the Army revolver was an ideal weapon for cavalry. In 1861, Confederate Colonel Wade Hampton specified that each mounted man of his combined arms Hampton Legion be armed with a saber and two Colt Army revolvers. Confederate partisan leader John Singleton Mosby countered the opinions of officers who argued that a saber was "always loaded," with the argument for the superiority of the pistol over the saber. Mosby believed edged weapons were "of no use against gunpowder." Mosby's men, who favored the Colt Model 1860 Army above all other revolvers, found rapid-fire handguns ideal for close range surprise charges on supply wagons or Federal patrols. A Federal officer wrote that his regiment "had never yet drawn the saber in a charge, and never would charge with anything but pistols." Men who relied on the Colt Model 1860 Army revolver as a primary weapon often carried a number of them. Many of Mosby's troopers holstered two such handguns on their belts and another two on their saddles. Rebel guerillas in Missouri often carried as many as five pistols each.There are additional pictures of this item on our Dropbox site.Shipping:We cannot ship this item.
