North Italian. Possibly composed. Main plates of wide, squared form for use with a shorter breastplate with a straight upper edge. The neck lames secured to the main plates in an atypical manner - with sliding rivets. The top plates with plain, angular inward turn. The top plates may be associated. Overall old blued finish with traces of gilding. Very similar in construction to gorget illustrated on plate 188 of L"Arte Dell"Armatura in Italia.
