The Duke of Burgundy Suit of Armor harkens from the 15th century, a bloody one for Europe. The War 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 almost a full 7 feet tall! Fully articulated.
