RARE, Victorian Or Earlier Medieval / Italian Renaissance Form Battle Shield With Ornate Decoration. Sn 13596 - 13596
The Victorian era saw a revival of interest in objects from the renaissance and ancient medieval cultures that influenced architecture, decoration, furnishings and art. This renewed awareness led to an intense affinity of arms and armour from those periods of history and production of quality authentic reproduction arms and armour. This is a fine medieval/ renaissance form battle shield. Its excellent quality and form indicates that it is either a Victorian reproduction or possibly a much earlier piece. The iron shield is 24” diameter with a rope effect and riveted rim. The surface of the shield elegantly curves to form a conical point which in its original form would allow the carrier to strike opponent’s, allowing the shield to be used for both defence and attack. This form also provides strength to the structure and would assist deflection of striking weapons. The whole surface of the shield has beautifully etched panels in the Italian Renaissance style featuring religious, hunting, mythical and battle iconography. The shield retains its original shape and original 4 carry strap lugs. The rear of the shield has its original leather riveted padding and a rope carry handle secured to 2 of the lugs. The shield has even patina and just one small crack approx. 5mm length to one side of the conical boss which is only visible on close inspection and does not detract from the attractiveness of the piece. The price for this quality shield worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 13596
