Classic example for the Gioco Del Ponte, the Pisan bridge tournament first fought in 1568. 7" width of characteristic form with eleven circular bars secured to scalloped medial top plate and bottom band with two securing lugs. Once heavily rusted (these were kept in the city arsenal of Pisa) now surface cleaned with encrustation to the inside and protected areas-all dating to antiquity. Important armor element from the later tournament period.
