A third-generation antique dealer, Giuseppe Piva is considered a leading international source of rare antique Japanese Samurai Armor and Art and he has contributed to form almost all the existing private collections of antique samurai armor and kabuto around the world as well as those of many museums.

We can provide a large selection of high quality items, with the goal of building collections of original and antique Samurai worls of art, in a field full of confusion about what is original and what is not, and what is of high quality and what is not.

The Samurai Armor for sale on our website have been throughly researched among international collectors, mostly based in Japan. If you plan to purchase an original antique Japanese work of art, you are very welcome to contact us and let us now what you look for.


Differently from our competitors, our website is constantly updated to show to our customers only available items, hiding those which are not our properties anymore. We know in this way we can show only few suits of armor, but we choose this policy as a form of respect to the collectors' privacy. For some exaples of what we have had in the past, plese look at the following photo gallery, while you can browse our current inventory of  Samurai Armor using the site menu or clicking here
