An outstanding example of a miniature suit of armour with articulated arms in the German gothic style, almost certainly the product of G.A. Gudé & Co. Ltd, 15/17 King Street, St. James's, London, circa 1920s. G. A. Gudé & Co specialised in original and reproductions of medieval armour; the construction and mounting of this suit is consistent with Gudé & Co catalogue examples. 

The suit is formed of steel and comprises of sallet, bevor, breast and back plates, tassets, full arm and leg harness, the former with pierced petalled besagews and fingered gauntlets, embossed with characteristic fluting, and with dome-headed rivets throughout. Complete with its shield, two-hand sword and second greatsword the blade with downbent side-lugs. The whole is raised on a wooden plinth.

The piece is of good proportions, has a fantastic patina throughout and displays extremely well.
