French Louis Philippe I Era 1845 Dated Cuirassiers Breast Plate Armour By The Imperial Chatellerault Arsenal With Regiment Markings ‘3T 2L’ & Armour Number ‘1041’. Sn 12820 - 12820
Cuirassiers were cavalry equipped with armour and firearms, first appearing in late 15th-century Europe. This French term means "one with a cuirass" (cuirasse), the breast plate armour which they wore. The first cuirassiers were produced as a result of armoured cavalry, such as the man-at-arms and demi-lancer, discarding their lances and adopting the use of pistols as their primary weapon. Cuirassiers achieved increased prominence during the Napoleonic Wars and were last fielded in the opening stages of World War I. Cuirassiers continue to be employed as ceremonial troops by a number of countries. This is an original French Cuirassiers breast plate from the reign of Louis Philippe I. Made of thick polished steel the breast plate weighs a hefty 5.76 Kilos. It is 15 ¼” tall (to the shoulder) and the interior curve is 19 ½” at its widest (near to the waist). The armour is curved to provide strength and has a flared waist. The armour has no damage or dents and just light areas of staining consistent with age. All but 2 of its interior hanging strap hooks are present and the exterior body of the armour has the correct shoulder strap studs. The interior rim of the breast plate is engraved in French ‘manufactured by Impériale de Chatellerault (arsenal)’ and dated ‘July 1845’ together with armour number ‘1041’ and Regiment designations ‘3T’ & ‘2L’. The interior of the armour at the left shoulder has matching number ‘1041’ and Regiment designations ‘3’ & ‘2’. Price for this impressive French Cuirassiers breast plate includes UK delivery.
