Fair condition (restored), see description - 70×25×35 cm

Top old body armour. The lacquer has been polished up. This has made the old colour radiate once more. Some broken bands have been replaced with originals, some gold-plating replaced e.g. on the rings. It could have been the armour of a warning soldier as they usually have gold strips on the armour.
