Buckler with concentric iron fittings 3D Model
Date: 15-16th century?
Total diameter: 39.4 cm
Total thickness: 0.92 cm
Collection: Medieval, National Museum of Denmark
This model is that of a small, center-gripped shields called a buckler. The two bucklers in the collection of the National Museum of Denmark stem from Norway and were given as gifts in 1813 by Skule Thorlacius. The body of this buckler is composed of a single piece of wood and reinforced with a boss, rim and various fittings of iron. The buckler was originally equipped with two eyelets fastened to the central handle which would have secured a carrying strap or loop. The iron rim displays both heavy and light trauma from sharp-edged weaponry. An incised mark (resembling St. Julian’s mark) can be observed between the two iron rings on the back, this possibly being the shield-maker’s mark.
