The workmanship of this armor and its materials are all of the highest quality. It includes the kusazuri (skirt) with an extremely rare color scheme of silk lacings in red, yellowish-green, black, and white. The mon, in the form of three whirling commas (mitsudomoe mon) is that of the Okabe family, feudal lords of Kishiwada (present-day Kishiwada City, Osaka Prefecture). The armor is signed on the inside of the helmet: Echizan nu Kuni Toyohara Jū Bamen Tomotsugu Saku (Made by Bamen Tomotsugu, residing in Toyohara, Echizen Province [Fukui Prefecture]). Bamen Tomotsugu was the leading armorer of the Bamn School in the eighteenth century. Complete armors signed by him are extremely rare.
