Shogun Tsunayoshi's (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) seal of office and two hand-painted kabuki masks from Carl Rinsch's fantasy action film 47 Ronin. Tsunayoshi carried his seal of office, and kabuki performers wore masks while dancing for the shogun and Lord Kira (Tadanobu Asano).
The fan-shaped, wood seal is painted black and features stickers of the shogun's golden emblem on each side. The full fibreglass kabuki face mask was worn by the Troupe Leader (Gedde Watanabe). The half-face mask is made of resin, and the full face mask features three holes for attachment with cords. All show minor wear from production use. Dimensions (seal): 34.5 cm x 9.5 cm x 2 cm (13½" x 3¾" x¾"); (full mask): 13 cm x 15 cm x 21 cm (5" x 6" x 8¼")
Estimate: £500 - 700 M
