This French Manufacture Royale de Klingenthal cuirassier armor front plate is dated 1826 on the inside bottom. Metal surface has a beautiful untouched grey patina, and presents very well. Along with the manufacturr's and inspector's stamps, there are also regimental numbers scrolleed on the back, which will further facilitate establishing the regimental provenance. A rather scarce piece, dating to the short rule of the Bourbon King Charles X, which lasted only from 1824 to 1830.

This is a very heavy piece, as it should be. Extra postage chages will apply.
