19th C. European Victorian Steel Armor Set w/ Helmet
Item Details
Description
Western Europe, probably England, Victorian period, ca. 19th century CE. A wonderful set of Victorian-era armor meant to emulate Medieval knight armor. The close helmet bears a central crest behind a hinged visor and bevor, a two-piece gorget adorned with steel rivets and a roped border, and a loop and pin on the right side. The peascod-style breastplate has a vertical rib that tapers to a lower point, a roped collar, and a pair of flared faulds with additional steel rivets. The broad pauldrons are each comprised of three articulating lames with steel rivets and a cut-out just above the bicep, and the three-piece vambraces each consist of an upper cannon, a couter, and a lower cannon. Size (w/ helmet): 28.75" W x 33.75" H (73 cm x 85.7 cm); 37.75" H (95.9 cm) on included custom stand.

Provenance: ex-estate of Eldert Bontekoe, Pegasi Numismatics, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, acquired May 4, 2015; ex-Fagan Arms, Clinton Township, Michigan, USA

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
