    Description

    Fine Miniature Suit of Armor in the 16th Century German Style by Edward Granger, Paris. This suit is similar in model and detail to the preceding lot, but this example is accompanied by an associated halberd and broadsword, not original to the suit. This example is mounted on a similar oval plinth and as the figure is fully articulated and can be manipulated into different stances and poses. The miniatures made by Edward Granger come closest to being actual scale models of period armor and not simply artistic versions or interpretations of a suit from the period. This example, like the previous, is seldom seen on the market and is a handsome example of European craftsmanship. The plinth bears an ormolu escutcheon with the raised legend in a bronze shield reading: Armure/ Du 16th/Siecle. The lower maker's plaque is absent from this example. Height: 16-inches.
    Condition: Very good. Some losses or breakage to strapping which need repair. Metal showing a brown age patina with scattered light spotting. Base with some de-lamination of veneer and minor blemishes. Light wear overall.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
