History

View this post on Instagram

Parte di armatura da ragazzo completamente decorata da soli incisi e dorati su fondo bronzato. E' attribuita all'armaiolo bresciano Orazio da Calino, attivo per la corte sabauda dal 1593 al 1623. Un'armatura simile appare in un'incisione tardo seicentesca che ritrae il principe Emanuele Filiberto (1588 - 1624). La decorazione segue la moda del tempo, che realizza sull'acciaio gli ornamenti tipici di abiti e tessuti. 🇬🇧 Part of a boy's armor decorated with engraved and gilded sun burst on a bronze background. This breastplate is attributed to the armorer Orazio Calino from Brescia, active for the Savoy Family from 1593 to 1623. A similar armor appears in a late-17th-century engraving depicting Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy (1588 - 1624). The decoration follows the fashion of the time, which creates the typical ornaments of clothes and fabrics on steel. . #museostibbert #stibbert #mystibbert #stibbertmuseum #frederickstibbert #visitflorence #igersfirenze #mostrefirenze #art #ig_italy #ig_florence #yallerstoscana #visittuscany #thebestmuseum #armsandarmor #armor #cuirasser #harness #italianart #italianarmor #steel

This bright gold armor must've been blinding to enemies on the battlefield. This fine detailing represents the armory fashion of the time - replicating jacquards and woven fabric patterns on metal armor. It's a cool concept worth examining in further detail. Maybe we'll use it for Spring 20.
