    Indian wootz Cuirass Armorset

     
    The unusual one-piece construction of the breastplate and the backplate, which resembles a stylized human torso, possibly reflects European incfluence. Both plates are forged from crucible steel, which also is referred to as watered steel because of the subtle rippling pattern visible in the structure of the metal. Watered steel was used often for sword and dagger blades, but only seldom for armor, and then only for examples of superior quality.
    The breastplate has a medial ridge and is embossed to the form of the pectoral muscles.
    the fastening of armour is by hinges , two on shoulder and another two on both sides.
    Cuirass has brown satin lining which is later added.
    there is 2 inches crack on back plate and pitting is there exist due to age.
    Overall in nice condition.
