Armet with Matching Wrapper

Italian, probably Milan

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 373

The armet was typically worn with a wrapper, a reinforcing plate that gave extra protection to the lower face and neck area. This is a rare example of an armet surviving together with its original wrapper.
