French Cuirassier armour set,
The set consists of a Cuirassier breastplate with its accompanying back plate. The back plate has shoulder straps attached to it that are of chain-mail metal rings.
Sadly The backing leather has perished with time & is no longer intact.
There is a maker's name engraved on the set , the mark is very small and worn with age.
Another marking contains the numbers 8 2 2. The third number (2) is rotated 90 degrees clockwise. I have attempted to catch it with my digital camera for you to make out.BOTH PIECES ARE MARKED WITH THE SAME MATCHING NUMBER.
This is quite a nice set of armour,,it has at some point in time had something spilt on the breastplate & its stained it,,this will probably clean off but will leave that to new owner,a very well marked set ,
Price-$1700 Aud.plus postage
