A selection of Japanese arms and armor is featured in the upcoming sale, presented by Cowan’s Auctions. One of the swords on offer is a katana sword from feudal Japan. A symbol of the Japanese samurai tradition, katana blades served as samurai weapons in the late 13th century. Since then, katanas have been widely recognized for their curved, single-edged blades.
Among the 410 items available in this auction, an English powder horn is a standout lot. Made from an animal horn, the piece was mostly used for carrying gunpowder. Engraved on this particular horn is a depiction of battleships sailing around a small coastal town with windmills. Another lot on display is a Model 11 hammerless shotgun from Beretta. Founded in the 16th century, Beretta is one of the best-known manufacturers of firearms. Other items available in the sale include military helmets, uniforms, knife collections, and more.
