Rare antique 16th century Turkish Ottoman armour "Vambrace", an upper arm defence which sits between the shoulder plates (pauldrons) and elbow (couter) composed of five steel plates engraved on the centre with a tulip flower springing from a leafy tuft. The tulip is one of the characteristic Ottoman decorative motive of the 16th century and frequently appears on Turkish Art during the 16th century as the Iznik ceramic, metal work, and textiles. As a result of increased relations between the Ottoman Empire and the west, the influences of European military equipment and art on Turkish Ottoman during this period time were very strong. European artists and craftsmen were appointed and were working in Ottoman Imperial manufactures beside Islamic craftsmen creating art work with combined elements of western and Islamic motives. This particular armor is an example of both of these influences and must have been custom made for a member of the Ottoman ruling class of this period time. Length: 21 cm (8 1/4 in)
