Italian Gothic Armor
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 plate armor were Germany and Italy. This suit of Gothic armor is fashioned after an Italian suit from the early 14th century. This is fuller, not as spiky, but still offers 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. Historically accurate and fully articulated, this is a fine example of the armorer's art. Hand forged by Windlass Steelcrafts of 18 gauge steel. Comes with wooden stand and helmet.
