Made in Germany and very likely used in England. At the time, most armor in England was imported from the major German producers in Augsburg and Nuremberg. The practice of hanging a knight’s helmet and gauntlets over his tomb was most popular in England, though practiced elsewhere. Seven pieces including rolled edge cuff with liner rivets, and gussets (with remnants of the liner glove) complete. Five metacarpal plates and scalloped umbral plate (small damage). Thumb and finger plates lacking as the connecting leather perished over centuries. The cuff pierced at the point for hanging. Mostly smooth brown patina with localized patches raised rusting. The first example we have offered in decades.
