Torquine Complete Suit of Armour EXCALIBUR

A set of ‘silver’ armour worn by one of Arthur’s older knights, Torquine, in John Boorman’s fantasy adventure Excalibur. Torquine wore his armour in a number of scenes after Arthur (Nigel Terry) established the legendary round table and sat at Arthur’s right at the table during a feast. All of the individual pieces were hand-beaten by armourer Terry English from aluminium and polished to a high shine. The suit consists of chest and back plates, arms, gauntlets, thigh guards, leg and feet guards and a helmet with visor. A skirt of chainmail is also included, however it is unknown whether this is original to this particular costume. The majority of components are labelled with the name “Torquine,” though some also feature names from where they were subsequently sent out for other productions after filming completed. The suit is embellished with rivets and raised lines and held together with leather straps and metal buckles. The helmet is not seen directly on screen. Over time the bright shine has faded, the suit shows some wear from use on set and the leather straps have become slightly brittle with age, but the costume remains in otherwise good condition. Dressed height: 180 cm (71”) tall £5,000-7,000
