A shoulder piece like this is also called a pixane. Pixanes were sewn to the gambeson and were usually worn underneath the suit of armour. As a result the wearer was also protected on open spots in the suit of armour.
This shoulder piece is made of flat rings with an inner diameter of 9 mm. The rings are woven four in one and subsequently riveted with wedge rivets. The shoulder piece measures 36 x 27 cm and has a neck opening of 15 x 24 cm. It weighs approx. 0,8 kg.
This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.
