For Sale: Complete Warwick Harness
This listing has been REMOVED and is no longer active

I am selling my complete harness based on the effigy armour of Richard Beauchamp, earl of Warwick (b.1382 - d.1439) found in Beauchamp Chapel, Warwick, England. It was purportedly based upon an Italian export harness by the Missaglia workshops in Milan circa 1454 when the gilt-bronze figure was completed. The cuirass, in particular, is one of the most unique and widely-known examples of Italian armour, with deep, curved channels that arc across the breastplate and plackart. The entire reproduction was crafted by Eric Dubé. Additional examples of his portfolio can be seen at

The harness features: armet (lined and padded) with wrapper; pauldrons with gardbrace and stop ribs; complete cuirass with a fauld of four lames and suspended tassets (front, side and rear); removable guard of the vambrace; gauntlets (lined and padded) and sabatons.

The harness was designed to fit a wearer around 5' 11"- 6’1” tall and having a waist measurement of around 36-38 inches, but it can be further adjusted within reason. It is constructed of mild steel in multiple gauges to meet International Jousting League requirements (2008).

The Warwick has been used primarily in historical re-enactment and educational demonstrations. It only has some very minor rust marks as well as the normal wear marks along the tops of the cuisses (legs) and joints where the maille and plates rub together. The internal suspension of the fauld was modified in 2014 to better collapse in Medieval-styled saddles. All four straps on the greaves have been replaced; additionally, one strap that supports the tassets and one on the bottom of the sabatons are in need of replacement. All other leathers are in their original condition. I have decided to sell in order to help finance another commission.

$15,000 USD. Serious inquiries only. Additional information and specific measurements available upon request from: socialmedia[at]
