    Chamfron Armor.

    Approximately 15 1/2-inches long and 10-inches at its widest. Possibly German. Plates held together with leather and hammered rivets. Of typical form, resembling a horse with raised openings near eyes and ears. No plume holder present, but floral base with spike and raised elements and decorative features outline this piece or armor. See, A Glossary of the Construction, Decoration and Use of Arms and Armor by Stone for similar examples [figure 213]. Although we have not dated this piece, appears of early origins.

    Condition: Good for its age and configuration. Some losses to left ear. Dents and bruising present. Aftermarket wire for display purposes. Cleaned at some point. Pitting to parts.
