From the William Fagan Ltd. Collection

While this shield has much in common with its European forbears, it draws its details from the shield of its opponents, the Ottoman kalkan. It is 21 ¾” in diameter with a thick rolled and roped edge to repel a sword or axe cut. The center and border, each flanked by radially reeded conical rivets are embossed in a woven pattern simulating the coil construction of the kalkan. The field is embossed with a further four large and four smaller rondels, each with the woven pattern repeated and a central conical rivet. The backs of all the rivets have a shallow reveal, about 1/64” for a thin liner, probably doe skin, now lacking. All the detail is produced with hand work showing the slight variances expected. The only example we have ever offered.
