Bishop's Mantle - Flat Rings With Round Rivets Mixed
A bishop's mantle is a chain mail collar that covers the neck, shoulders and upper part of the chest and back. It was particularly favoured by the German Landknechte (mercenary soldiers) in the 15th and 16th centuries and is woven similarly to a mail coif. The shape of this piece of chain armour explains its name, as it resembled the very wide-cut collar of a bishop's mantle.
The bishop's mantle is modelled on historical examples. It features a jagged edge. A riveted leather liner protects the area around the neck and the neckline is adjustable by means of straps and genuine late medieval brass buckles.
