Armours like this were made by the Milanese master armourers between 1400 and 1500 and commissioned by nobles and captains throught Europe. This Italian style armour comes surmounted by a man-at-arms helmet typical of the second half of the 15th century provided with a"sparrow-beak"visor. The armour is similar to the one worn by Roberto of Sanseverino commander of the Venetian army during the war against the Hapsburgs for the control of the southern Tyrol and who died in battle in 1487. It is now held at Waffensammlungen museum in Vienna.

Height - 6'8"(stand included). Weight - 80 pounds. It is made of a very strong 18 gauge steel and is fully wearable. It will fit a knight up to 6'2"tall. It is hand crafted and provided with a rectangular wooden base.

This armor is hand-crafted in Italy and comes just as you see it with the stand and inner support frame. The suit will stand alone on the included base or the pieces disassemble and can in fact be worn. All fine knights of course had a Squire to assist in the dressing and undressing process and we recommend that here. The armor is somewhat forgiving in size and will optimally fit a person approximately 5'10 ft. tall and 185 pounds. The size range is from a minimum of 5'7"/ 150 lb. to 6'2"/ 220 lb. maximum. There are some adjustment straps to accommodate the wearer's actual body type to make the proper fit adjustments. We recommend wearing proper arming garments under the armor. It is not recommended that you wear the armor outside in extreme hot sunny conditions.
