A Pair of Early 20th Century Painted Bronze Samurais. This exciting pair of Early 20th Century Unsigned Painted Bronze Samurais is a sight to behold! Both holding removable swords. The samurai (or bushi) were the warriors of Pre-Modern Japan. They later made up the ruling military class that eventually became the highest-ranking social caste of the Edo Period (1603-1867). Samurai employed a range of weapons such as bows and arrows, spears and guns, but their main weapon and symbol was the sword. The bottoms of these have pine wood to hide the hollowing left from the lost wax method of casting. It also makes it easy to glue some felt on the wood if you plan on placing them on a surface you don’t want to scratch. Unsigned. The approximate weight of samurai 1 is 73lbs and samurai 2 is approximately 53lbs. Samurai 1 has a height of 33.5in, width of 19in, and depth of 12in. Samurai 2 has a height of 32.5in, width of 19in, and depth of 12.5in.
