~ Mid 17th Composite North European Harquebusiers Armour ~

The harquebusier was the most common form of cavalry found throughout Western Europe during the early and mid 17th century. Early harquebusiers were characterised by the use of a form of carbine, called a "harquebus". In England, harquebusier was the technical name for this type of cavalry, though in everyday usage they were usually simply called 'cavalry' or 'horse'.

The helmet has a two piece skull, and with three simulated lames to the neck. The pivoted visor is fitted with three face bars.

The breast plate is almost of siege weight, it has the rare remains of one of its original straps.

~ Dimensions ~

The helmet measures 40 cm (15.5 inches) in depth, 25 cm (9.75 inches) wide and 33 cm (13 inches) tall. It weighs 1.84 Kg.

The breast plate measures 35 cm (14 inches) in depth and 41 cm (16 inches) wide. It weighs 4.3 Kg.

The back plate measures 35 cm (14 inches) in depth and 41 cm (16 inches) wide. It weighs 1.4 Kg.

~ Condition ~

Please refer to the images. The helmet is decent and sturdy, the visors moves as it should. The breast plate is in good order, not the comment about the strap. The back plate is rusted, perforated and with some loss.
