This suit of armour is made of several parts that are all reproductions of originals. Similar suits of armour were worn between the late 14th and the 1st half of the 15th century. It is made in the Milanese style. They were worn by the European aristocracy and are depicted on tombstones and in manuscripts all over Europe. Suits of armour like this were i.a. worn during the 100 Years War between France and England.

England and France.
