Most medieval versions of gorgets were simple neck protectors that were worn under the breastplate and backplate set. These neck plates supported the weight of the armour worn over it, and many were equipped with straps for attaching the heavier armour plates.
This style can be seen by end of the 15th century and represents logical evolution link in armour development chain. From the bascinet with aventail and visor, up to the combination of sallet with gorget there is a very understandable improvement. In this combination the protection is rigid at the neck, yet articulated obtaining a great protection and efficiency.
This gorget is made at the style of central Europe and is perfect for the time between years 1480 and 1500.
I am sorry we do not ship to the Switzerland as the Swiss customs requires a special licence for import of weapons (that we do not hold). You can make your order, as long as you can provide a delivery address in the EU.
