    Anyone know why the breast protection on the right arm covers a smaller area than the left? Is it for increased range-of-motion for sword work?

    Gold etched armor. Late 1500s.

    During the late Middle Ages and Renaissance, some of the finest armorers worked exclusively for royal patrons in the workshops set up to meet their needs. In 1511 King Henry VIII of England established such a workshop at Greenwich Palace outside London, which produced outstanding armor for the English court for over a century. It was staffed largely by German craftsmen, among them Jacob Halder, who was master workman at Greenwich when this half-armor was produced around 158890.
