Armoured sleeve

Description
Matching armoured sleeves (kote) were created in the late 12th century. However, this is an example of oda gote because of the link to the Oda school where it originated. These sleeves are marked by gourd-shaped plates (hyotan gane) which were sometimes hinged to open up to store medicines or other materials. These sleeves are covered with mail.
