Tasset 1550-60

For the right leg. Rough from the hammer. Formed of nine plates, the top plate formed to fit to the base of the fauld, the lowest plate cupped to cover the knee. Currently plates secured by sliding rivets at the outside, remains of leather at the center and solid rivets on the inside. The solid rivets would have originally been another leather. The top plate has three buckles which are used to strap the tassets to the fauld. The center buckle has been replaced, likely after its working life. Displayed as part of item number A-1.
