Gothic Suit of Armor

#300018
$2,496.00

Large sections of plate armor began to be added to mail during the middle of the 13th century. This continued until full plate armor developed sometime in the late 14th century. Two main centers for the production of armor were Germany and Italy. One of the most beautiful of the styles was that called “Gothic”. The Italian Gothic, which we have reproduced, was fuller, not as spiky, but offering a great deal of protection as well as comfort. Offering a rounded surface to both lance and sword, the Italian Gothic armor was in high demand throughout Europe. During this period of time, the average suit of armor would cost about the same as a top of the line Mercedes now. Fortunately our suit doesn’t cost anywhere near that! Historically accurate and fully articulated, this is a fine example of the armorer’s art. Hand forged by Windlass Steelcrafts of 18 gauge steel. Complete with full skeletal body and decorative skirt. Leather straps. Comes with wooden pedestal making this piece stand approximately 6-1/2 feet tall!

Duke of Burgundy Suit Of Armor

The 15th century was a bloody one for Europe. The Wars of the Roses, problems in the French monarchy, the constant warfare between the city states of Italy and the final expulsion of the Moors from Spain – the whole continent seethed with bloody strife. One result of this constant warfare was the improvement of plate armor to its peak of efficiency. We are pleased and proud to offer a full suit of armor based on a 1450’s Italian style. Hand-forged of 18 gauge steel by experienced blacksmiths at Windlass Steelcrafts, this impressively crafted replica is as stout as the original. This noble and enduring symbol of the knightly age comes partially assembled with a handsome hardwood display pedestal, ready to enhance your own castle entrance. Comes complete with full skeletal body and decorative skirt. Stands approximately 6-1/2 feet tall! Fully articulated.
