Product Description

Details

The use of leather and metal protection is believed to be the reason why Victorian people thought there were "studded" armours. This confusion has come in many cases up to the present day where we can easily find references in role playing games or literature. The truth is that there are historical examples of leather or cloth protection riveted to metal bands to reinforce the structure and this is what probably led to the error of our ancestors. It´s a logical evolution in the transitional armour age and some examples can be seen on the Günther von Schwarzburg´s (1349) and Sir Thomas Cheyne´s (1375) funerary brasses that gives a wide range of dating on this armour.

This arms are made of three pieces and are similar to the ones on Günther von Schwarzburg´s effigy where steel bands alternate on the outside and inside.
