    The breastplate is a + - Spartan design.. of course the originals were in bronze. Someone could spray it with bronze paint or a coating to make it authentic looking. The shield is a fantasy shield of some kind.. just thought you might want to know, from a long time student of ancient warfare, arms, etc

    It's like the old saying.. beauty is in the eye of the beholder. In other words since they are hand made with nothing to compare to, I really don't know, but they sure are unique pieces. My collector's interest is Scottish and Viking but lots of folks are into Spartan items, and after all we patriots use the perfect phrase of defiance Molon Labe!
