Knight's armour or plate armour Churburg
This decorative armour was made according to the model which stands in the South Tyrolean castle Churburg. All parts are movable, so that the armour is wearable. However, we would like to point out that wearing the armour was not the main focus of the design, so that a 100% accuracy of fit should not be expected.
A definite eye-catcher as a decorative element.
The wearer of the armour should be about 175-180cm tall and have an average stature. All parts have adjustable straps.
The armour consists of the following components:
- Helmet, a so-called dog guillemot, a helmet variation of the pelvic hood with a folding visor with a chain-bell and a padded hood
- two very elaborately chased leg parts, consisting of shoulder protection, upper and lower arm tubes and elbow tiles
- a pair of hentzen, very movable armoured gloves with brass applications
- the typical foldable Churburg breastplate
- two complete leg parts, with upperdiechlings, knee tiles, lower leg tubes
and armoured shoes, (also called sabatons, iron shoe or soleret)
