English Civil Wars period. Of three layers of iron, forged welded to form a solid plate. See our Catalog 97, items #1051, 1052, 1053, 1054, 1055, and 1056 for details of this construction. 11 1/2" height. The neck, arms and base heavily rolled. Two suspension studs to the front. The base flare with eight armorer's control punch marks and pierced with clusters of three holes each side for hinges. Lacking the musket ball proof found on Parliamentary examples which supported the crown, this example was probably made for the Cromwellian opposition.
