Post by Mark Griffin »

Some new arms and legs I'm having done for Agincourt 600. Just the polishing and gilding to go!

So the arms have been tweaked a bit, and now await a final polish and the gilded bands adding.

Sopeaking of which, we have so much gilding to do on other stuff I have enetred the world of home gilding. Example 1 attached, a test buckle plate. Not quite polished enough

Hope you nickel plated underneath the gold or you'll find it will become brown in about 6 months.

Pen or vat plated ?

Well its been a while since Nov 2013 when I met Josh Davis from Davis Reproductions in Minneapolis over here and we discussed making some arms and legs to improve a harness I had bought and he took some measurements of my fine limbs.

I then visited in January last year and the already roughed out arms and legs were tried on and a few adjustments made. We then spent the year discussing bits and bobs,sending them over here again for more fittings, sorting the decoration out and now they are on their way to me. I can't wait to see them but here is a selection of pics of the finished items.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/em5u6rp61lyb ... b-TKa?dl=0

They are based on a variety of English effigies but the main feature are the dogfish fin couters and poleyns which i like and don't often see reproduced. These come from an effigy of Sir Thurstan de Bowers in Tideswell Church inn Derbyshire.

The gilded bands follow the pretty much standard style of English decoration of the period. They all have the same features and the same artistic elements so there is much evidence to follow. Thanks goes to Toby Capwell for helping out with various images along the way and Robert McPherson who also made helpful suggestions.

Hopefully you'll agree that Josh has done a great job on them!
