We are selling a copy of a Roman shield for reenactors in original size.
This style of shield with its handmade painted design was copied from grave steles for legionnaires and trajan's column(see below) in Rome.
It is made from plywood with a linen surface and a rim of brass with a brass hump.
Weighs: abt. 6 kgs. (13 lbs)
Overall height: 106 cms/(41.73 inch)
Overall width: 72 cms/(28,5 inch) measured along the surface.
Now, see the image of a Roman warfare "testudo", the protective screen of overlapping shields held overhead and on the sides:
Because of its size shipment to the US is not possible, sorry. See our shield D53, which is similar but a little smaller and can be sent to the US.
