Churburg Armor Breastplate - XIV Century Armor - 16 Gauge

Please Make a Selection:

This Churburg Armor breastplate is crafted from riveted plates of 16 gauge steel fitted with decorative bands of brass. The plates are fitted to internal panels of riveted leather which allow these segments of steel to be articulated.

This chest armor is fitted to the back with an adjustable buckle and strap and a pair of shoulder straps with corresponding, adjustable steel buckles. The interior of the armor is blackened. It is fitted with a hinged lance-rest on the front of the armor.

Please Note: Unlike most breastplates, the Churburg Armor style breastplate is smaller and not fully encompassing of the entirety of the torso. Depending on how it is worn, it is intended to cover the upper-central region of the torso or to protect the central part of the torso. This is done because the original Churburg suit of armor on which this reproduction is modeled was a 14th Century ‘’transitional’’ armor - it was intended to be used alongside a large amount of chainmail. It was a type of armor that straddled the evolution in armor from chainmail to plate.

The Churburg #13 is a plate and mail armor now kept within Castle Churburg in Italy. This armor was crafted in Milan in the last half of the 14th Century. It is deemed a ‘’transitional’’ type of armor - namely a largely mail armor with some plate added on. It heralds the trend of medieval warriors adding more and more plate until their armors were mostly steel plate - at least this is the case for those who could afford it. The Churburg is a well known example of this type because of its eye-catching embellishments that have made it widely studied and displayed.
