A very nice 17th century English Breast & back plate for an officer, both are of high quality manufacture, the Breast plate struck with two armourers marks below the centre of the neck and with a single incised line border, the back plate is an almost perfect match other than having a twin line incised border. It is quite rare to find an original matching set and this is a very acceptable marriage, they were very often mixed up in the armoury or whilst on display in many period country estates and the majority you will see are not  true pairs.


This breast & Back Plate would pair well with the following helmet we currently have for sale, See link below!
