Early 15th Century Milanese Armor

Our Gothic Suit of Armor replicates the style seen during the late 14th Century. 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!

This full suit of Milanese armor is suitable for display - particularly for someone who wants a display armor that is much more realistic in proportion and appearance than what is commonly available on the market. The armor is constructed from plates of riveted and articulated 18 gauge steel.

Included with the armor is a sturdy armor display stand of blackened metal and a weighty wooden base that doubles as a display pedestal. Included is a holder for a sword tip that can be affixed to the wooden base. The gauntlets are fitted at an angle to allow them to rest upon the hilt of a sword to complete the display. Sword not included.

The helmet is fully wearable and fitted with an integrated leather suspension liner and a buckled chin strap. The torso and leg armor is also wearable. The arm armor however, is constructed in such a way that it would make movement difficult.
