A rare item indeed, this German armor was made during the latter part of the 16th century for Ruppert, a dwarf at the court of duke Johann Casimir (1564-1633) and has been listed in the inventory of Veste Coburg since 1601/04. Though I'm not aware of the exact hights- I remember it barely four (4) feet tall- while standing next to it. This armor is by no means a costume armor, but a fully functional harnish with a weight of 16.5 kilograms....and rather massive for its overall height. A varied and wonderful Collection I consider a 'must see' for any armor buff, don't miss it at: Veste Coburg/Germany.
