We cangauge theperiod orconstruction to be betweenEarly to Mid Edo period and considering the age the piece is in nice condition, with a nice patina. The expression is very pleasant, with a tall nice and nicely done moustache. You'll note how part of the moustache continues from the nose plate onto the cheek plates, and the ears have nice small rivets.
