Throughout the centuries, the two great centers of armour manufacturing
remained in Italy and Germany wherein talented craftsmen created armour
for Nobility. Italian armour was highly prized for superior style and
Germany for incredible detailing, it is no wonder that the workshops of
the time copied the best features and styles of each other and by the 16th
century, Germans had adopted the full rounded outlines of Italian armour
while the Italians took note of the decorative designs and characteristics
popular with German armour. Our superior reproduction 17th century full
suit of plate Armour boasts a basinet style helm and smooth plates,
utilizing the artistry of both great armour centers and is crafted in the
styling tradition of those master craftsmen who created the originals for
kings and knights throughout Europe. See the difference between this suit
of armour from Italy and others made elsewhere, there is no comparison.
This Life size and wearable articulated Suit of Armour is made of steel
and stands about 6-1/2 foot high to top of helm on its own wood base (as
shown) and comes complete with sword.
