Made for Sweden's King Gustavus Adolphus as a tilting armor, this assembly was possibly made in Norrköpin and gilded by Charles Dartené in the Hague in 1620. This armor was deposited in the Armoury in 1624 and carried in 1634 during Gustavus Adolphus' funeral procession, which is probably the time that mountings for the reinforcing pieces and lance-rest were removed. A magnificent piece of armor no doubt, it is part of the collection of: Royal Armoury in Stockholm/Sweden.
