This cuirass is made in the 16thcentury Maximilian style. It was the most advanced armour of its time and besides it was highly fashionable. The widening between the breast cuirass and the tassets is derived from the wide knickerbockers that men wore around this period. The tassets consist of five parts and the edged of both the breastplate and backplate are ornamented with rope-shaped ends.
