18th C. Tokugawa Clan Crest Samurai Brass Encased Blue and White Porcelain Stacking Bowls

This has to be one of the rarest pieces from my collection….having been a soldier myself I know that combat does not take a lunch break….never has and never will, with the possible exception of a special Christmas day supper. So we can imagine during a lull in the battle a Samurai reaching under his armor or inside a pack for these little stacked bowls in their precision fit lidded brass encasement, for a small protein snack. Tere is a small bruise on the second level bowl that coincides with a small dent that looks to have been made by a piece of lead shot….The handle on the lid could use a rewelding, though it is still solidly attached. Otherwise, quite a rare piece from the last Edo Shogunate.
