Part of an armor for field and tilt (c. 1590) which was most likely made by Jacob Halder, a German Plattner who was active at the Greenwich Armouries until 1607 and along the way became known as the QUEEN'S ARMOURER. (See: a short history of Plattnerkunst) The breastplate of this incredible armor is of "peascot form" a style with a high, narrow waist that mirrored the civilian doublet of the time.This item is part of the former Harding Collection and can now be viewed at the: Art Institute of Chicago/Illinois.
