This set of armour is similar to a 17th century Persian suit illustrated in the document file, which is described as having been hand-made and taking about five months to complete. The shield is decorated with inscriptions and floral motifs. The helmet features a nose guard, as well as chain mail to protect the neck. This set is from the collection of Bruce and Dorothy Brown.
