Papier mache or paper mache is derived from French meaning 'chewed paper'. Paper Mache is a composite material consisting of paper pulp reinforced with some adhesive which hardens upon drying and then is painted upon. Paper Mache was introduced in Kashmir by the Persian Mystic Mir Syed Ali Hamdani, popularly known as Shah-i-Hamdan in Kashmir. It is believed that during his visit to Kashmir, the Shah was accompanied by a host of craftsmen who were favored by the local court of the Sultan of Kashmir, Zain-ul-Abidin. After time the art and craft that was ancestral to these artisans from Persia and Central Asia started to flourish in the vale of Kashmir.

Japanese Edo Abumi stirrups by Nakamura Keiken
Item# 9683    $3900
Japanese Edo Abumi stirrups by Nakamura Keiken

Pair of Abumi, saddle stirrups made by “Nakamura Keiken”. The Nakamura family are well known metal artists who also made Tsuba and other Samurai metal works in the Japanese Edo period. This pair of stirrups are both inlaid with pure gold and have Ryusui, a water theme. Natural wear, minor gold loss in some areas. Dating from the 18th-19th century. Each strirup measures 12 inches long x 10 inches high x 5 inches wide. Stirrups like these were used to support the rider’s feet while seated on horseback. During warfare, they allowed mounted samurai to stabilize position and control the horse while firing a weapon or brandishing a sword. Curving up and back in the front, they bring the loop for the leather connecting-strap over the instep, providing superior balance. Only high-ranking samurai could ride horses in the Edo period. Elegantly decorated stirrups were a sign of the owner’s privileged position.
