Gorget early 17th c.

German. Possibly Nuremberg. Rough from the hammer. Rolled neck and outer edge, both bordered by rivets carrying the remains of leather bands. Shape original. Signs of later enhancement by the addition of engraved bands with patterns. These are light, surface lines. This is likely a minimal example of a gorget designed for wear without a breastplate. The most aggressive form of this style is illustrated by item number A-261.
