zertsalo. XVII century

For strengthening of hauberk or armor in Xvi-xvii centuries in Russia adapted the additional armors, which were put on above the armor. These armors were named "zertsalami". They consisted of the majority of the cases of four large plates: front, rear and two lateral. The plates, whose weight rarely exceeded 2 kg, were connected between themselves and were fastened on the arms and the sides belts with the buckles (shoulder straps and naramnikami). Zertsalo, ground and polished to mirror brightness (hence - the name of armor), frequently covered with gilding, decorated with engraving and coinage, in THE XVII century most frequently had already purely decorative nature; however, toward the end of century their value, as any other defensive armor, fell completely.
 
In the meeting of Armory Chamber were preserved the complete zertsal'nyy armor OF THE XVII century, which consists of the helmet, zertsala, naruchey and ponozhey.
