Period Dutch Cuirassier Armor and Jackboots, Circa 1630
Scarcely Encountered Antique Armor, Exceedingly Rare JackbootsSOLD


Period Dutch Cuirassier Armor and Jackboots, Circa 1630

Scarcely Encountered Antique Armor, Exceedingly Rare Jackboots, entire view

A fine example of a typical Dutch armor of the 1630s…the United Netherlands
production of arms and armor was at a peak during the Thirty Years War.
The Dutch Republic was known as the arsenal of the world; Dutch arms were exported
worldwide. This armor, from the famous collection of Colonel D. Warton of Hoar Cross
Hall, Hoar Cross, Burton-On-Trent, U.K. (We have the bill of sale dated 1972)
The armor comprises of an open burgonet helmet having a bevor to protect the neck
and a full comb ridge and original check pieces. The burgonet helmet is made from a
single piece of steel; helmet and hinged cheek pieces remain in superb condition.
The gorget features an articulated neck, front and backplate; two pieces, hinged on one
side and closed with a push button. The heavy breastplate is of peascod form with a
single lame at the waist; breast and backplate retain original leather straps. The
pauldrons are all complete with original leather work, the nine lames are each riveted
allowing for freedom of movement…an expensive design. The pauldrons are lined with
old leather, some replacement lamets, overall good. The heavy cuirassier type
breastplate is marked as is the backplate. The tassets are of knee length, comprising of
17 riveted leather strapped segments and display the typical Dutch style featuring
sparse floral decorations and finely lined lames. The tassets are to protect the knees;
left tasset is an early Victorian replacement matching its counterpart in every detail.


Period Seventeenth Century European Cuirassiers Jackboots with Spurs
Likely the only pair to be sold in the United States in the past fifty years…
A rare opportunity to acquire a true arms and armor rarity.
The jackboot is a heavy, stiffened boot worn by postillion riders in the 17th and 18th
centuries. While the jackboot provided excellent protection, the extreme weight, forward
cant, and absolute rigidity of the boot makes it utterly unfit for walking. The boot gets its
name from the jacked leather, horsehide treated with wax and pitch or tar to make it
black and waterproof, from which they were traditionally made
The heavy boots of thick leather are complete with their heavy 17th century rowel spurs
and fitments. Front covers are decorated; soles of very heavy leather appear to be
original to boots. The boots are 22-1/2" high. Lateral loops for fastening boots to saddle
are intact on right boot. Both boots with their original spurs. These are rare cut-proof
and impact-proof boots worn by European Cuirassiers in battle and are particularly
appropriate to exhibit with a black and white or other type of later half armor. Overall
very good condition for a pair of these scarce boots with expected losses like boot
pictured in George Cameron Stone's Glossary of the Construction, Decoration and Use
of Arms and Armor as figure 394, page 312, described as German 16-17th century,
(Metropolitan Museum of Art).
The Leather riding boots are in very good condition with minimal loses, any
imperfections are minor and constant with age and use.

SOLD the lot, armor and boots.

Antique Papal Zouave Uniform, Gray Wool with Red Trim, Brass Buttons
Zouaves Pontificaux, Multinational Fighting Force that Defended the Vatican


Antique Papal Zouave Uniform, Gray Wool with Red Trim, Brass Buttons

Zouaves Pontificaux, Multinational Fighting Force that Defended the Vatican, entire view 1

A regiment of volunteers from all over Christendom who banded together to defend
Blessed Pope Pius IX and his temporal sovereignty between 1860 and 1871; their
uniform is a combination of the uniform of the Zouaves of Africa and the one of the
French infantries. This uniform would change the title of “bataillon de tirailleurs” into the
famous “Zouaves Pontificaux.”The New York Herald of 10 June 1868 numbered the
zouaves at 4,592, including 50 Englishmen, 10 Scots, 101 Irish, 14 Americans and 135
Canadians. Even Africa and China were represented. The largest nationality was,
perhaps surprisingly, the Dutch (1,910), followed by the French (1,301).
