Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

English Civil War period breast plate, traditionally worn with a buff coat and back plate by cavalry units and dragoons (mounted infantry of both sides). This has London Armourers Company marks at the neck. There is a musket ball proof dent to the chest.

There is some damage to the left hand shoulder element, but essentially the piece is in excellent condition for its age, with good patination to the front and red rust to the reverse.

It got here this morning, presumably delayed by the holidays. It is perfect, indeed better than I was expecting.

Hi Chris, just to let you know it arrived safely and I am very happy with it, also the condition. I have been looking for a while for that particular style and maker.. Thanks again for everything and I shall now be keeping an eye on your web page.
