The Carlos V Suit of Armor is a full-sized replica suit of 16th century Spanish armour, reproduced based on the ones that belonged to Charles V and Philip II, which today are a part of the collection of the Real Armeria in Madrid. The armor, each piece being meticulously handcrafted, has been made in polished steel and iron, characterized by exquisitely etched elaborate floral figures etched on the largest part of its surface. Provided with an arabesque fabric gown and sword with velvet wrapped hand grip, the armor is atop a solid 22″ x 22″ wooden platform reinforced with metallic angles. A space in the helm is left open, allowing for ornamental ostrich feathers to be inserted as decoration.
This medieval knights suit of armor is an exceptionable symbol of historic and noble times that can be adapted to any interior decor. Handcrafted in Toledo, Spain, the suits of armor by Martespa, a division of Marto, are the best replicas you can find. Their unrivaled quality and historical authenticity makes them a valuable and impressive collector item!
