Europe. Mid-15th century.
Mild Steel, thickness 1.5 mm
Plate Milanese hand`s Protection of classical form – the lower part is bivalve, the elbow is segmental (2 segments below, 1 segment is above), the vambracer is half-open. Elbow pads (protection of the elbow cavity) were also often made asymmetrical. The right bump stop was usually made much larger than the left, complex shape, which, however, did not interfere with the movements of the hand. Such protection arose from the abandonment of the shields. The left elbow pad had a small bump.
Sometimes with the help of a steel screw and a wing nut, a large tournament elbow pad was sometimes attached on it
In some export versions of the armor, both elbow pads had symmetrical large bumpers.
