Cornwall (Corin Redgrave) Complete Suit of Armour EXCALIBUR

Armour worn by Cornwall (Corin Redgrave) during the early scenes where he fought against Uther Pendragon (Gabriel Byrne) in John Boorman’s fantasy adventure Excalibur. Legendary armourer Terry English constructed this armour by hand from aluminium especially for the movie. The suit is composed of chest and back plates, two pauldrons, arms, gauntlets, thigh guards, leg and feet guards, a leather gusset and the distinctive helmet with visor. Many of the components are embellished with small round bumps, and the suit is held together with rivets, buckles, leather straps and leather thong. It is intentionally given a darker look and is not polished like other traditional ‘silver’ sets of armour. As expected, the armour received wear and tear from its use on set and was also used on subsequent productions after Excalibur. However, the suit remains in good condition. The leather straps have become brittle but still function if handled with care. The arms are labelled “Cornwall” and “Stephen Sparshatt;” the helmet is labelled “Cornwall Corin Redgrave.” The suit is fitted with replacement gloves, gauntlets and knees which were made by English after production to complete the suit’s aesthetic. Dressed height: 180 cm (71”) tall £6,000-8,000
