Halloween Gothic Full Suit Of Armour By Nauticalmart . After numerous requests by our customers, we are proud to bring back one of our most popular items. This Gothic hand forged suit of armour is offered at an UNBEATABLE Price! Large sections of plate armour began to be added to mail during the middle of the 13th century. This continued until full plate armour developed sometime in the late 14th century. Two main centers for the production of armour were Germany and Italy. One of the most beautiful of the styles was that called ÐGothicÓ. The Italian Gothic, which we have reproduced, was fuller, not as spiky, but offering a great deal of protection as well as comfort. Offering a rounded surface to both lance and sword, the Italian Gothic armor was in high demand throughout Europe. During this period of time, the average suit of armour would cost about the same as a top of the line Mercedes now. Fortunately our suit does not cost anywhere near that! Historically accurate and fully articulated, this is a fine example of the armours art. Hand forged by Windlass Steelcraftså of 18 gauge steel.
