Vintage Japanese Eboshi Hat in Original Cedar Box Excellent Condition
Vintage Japanese Eboshi Hat in Original Cedar Box - Excellent Condition. I believe the Kanji on the box says Tate Eboshi which translates directly to Standing Bird Hat.
This head gear of the Japanese Shinto originally dates back centuries and was often worn by nobles in the Heian period. This item was bought in Japan in the 1990s from an antique store and I have had it ever since.
