    The only thing I know about this item is that I bought it at a Japanese estate sale it measures 6 inches wide and four and a half inches high. It's made of cast iron. I don't know the period in which it was made nor what it's called or what it represents also curious as to what that creature is in the top of the helmet so any information that anybody could give me would be helpful thank you.
