Long Description

This is a sturdy set of ornate metal vambraces, suitable for protecting the arm. There are two separate plates, one for the upper arm and one for the lower arm, and a separate leather attachment at the elbow to allow for free movement. They are mainly ceremonial in their application, and not particularly meant to protect the wearer from maiming during a real battle. There is an eagle grasping a rose in its claws on the shoulder.

It appears to have something written on it.

Written in highly ornate script:

Whoso wears this hallowed armour is recognised as a member of the Holy Order of the Knights of Genua.

Appraises As

The pair of ornate metal vambraces is about six inches long and four inches wide. It is made of steel and could be worn as armour.
