A small lacquered tosei gusoku, Edo period, 19th century
A samurai would often have, when wearing his armor, some accouterments which could indicate his role of leader, such as a scepter or a war-fan, or which were accessories to his armaments, such as a quiver, a sword holder, or a gunpowder flask. These items were generally quite simple but high-rank samurai would have fine items made for their equipment, using lacquer and metal decorations.
