Rare 16C Ottoman Breast Plate Armor (krug) - 7514
We offer here a rare, early 16C Ottoman breast armor (krug) comprising of a circular breast plate embossed with a series of very narrow ribs radiating from a central boss and with five smaller shaped plates attached to it by riveted iron rings (some losses). Also retaining the outer plates for protecting the lower neck and arm openings (most rings connecting it to the breast plate are missing). Both the central plate rim and the neck plate are struck with the mark of the Ottoman Court Arsenal at Hagia Eirene. Very good condition to age. Very rare.
