A beautiful example of Early Ottoman mail and plate body armour. The armour consists of chain link shirt, neck defence and short skirt. The breast of the warrior was protected by two solid plates, fastened together by three decorated buckles. The back of the armour displays a set of long horizontal plates embedded in mail and resembling laminar armour, which gave some agility and ease of movement to the warrior.

Mail and plate armours are well attested in Middle Eastern cultures, and were imported by the Golden Horde. - (GM.014)
