Jingaza (Samourai Hat)

Second half of the Edo period



wood gilded and lacquered in relief

Diam.35cm

Jingaza with Chanomi crest This unusual and rare lacquer technique was imported from China and represents a stylized floral design, with red lacquer inside. The gold color is the most important in Japan, hence the belonging of this hat to a shogun (general) or a noble man. We only know a very few rare examples of such a hat.
