    Gents, IMO not of the Imperial era, the "Cuirass" does not have the features of a the heavy cavalry breast plates (Cuirass) worn by the Cuirassiers and heavy cavalry units of the German Confederation. Armoured gloves not worn in Imperial Prussian/German times, (1870-1918). IMO from an earlier time, I am not knowledgable on arms and armour before 1871, although at a rough guess your items (if genuine) could be from the 16th/17th Century, and might well be of German origin. Have a look below...... Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    Thanks Steve, my father had said this was his Great, Great Grandfathers from the early 1800's.

    Regards, Grant.
