Some treasures from Dreams of Kings, a small but important show at the China Institute in lower Manhattan now through November 12 #jade #armor #lamellar #handynasty #xuzhou #chinainstitute

Detail from Thomas Rowlandson's 1809 print, Horse Armoury, showing the Line of King in the Tower of London, and some of the contemporaneous studies of figures in the line, which anachronistically represented the kings of England from William the Conqueror to George I. We will be accessioning the sketches soon and adding them to the database and website where they can be studied by everyone. More information about the line of kings can be found in Alan Borg's seminal article, "Heads and Horses from the Line of Kings," in Archaeologia, vol. CV, 1976 #metmuseum #metarmsandarmor #prints #drawings #toweroflondon #thomasrowlandson

Among several unaccessioned works long sleeping in our archives that we are preparing to accession, this 1794 print of the purported armor of Henry VIII's jester Will Summers, and a completely unknown original preparatory drawing for the print. We also have several related drawings for the Line of Kings as it appeared in the Tower of London ca. 1800, which I will post later #armor #henryviii #metarmsandarmor #metmuseum #drawings #prints

We survived! 25 miles and 89 degrees but raising money for the Western Mass Food Bank, so it is all good. Great ride with our friends Laura and John, and lots of good food and drink afterwards #pioneervalley #biking #westernmassfoodbank #willbikeforfood

Vintage artillery shells anyone? Never know what you'll find at Castle Architectural Selvage in Northampton MA #ordnance #artillery #cannonballs #northampton

Daniel Jaquet giving a great presentation this evening, in full armor (!), for our first Friends of Arms and Armor meeting of the season. Thanks to everyone who attended and to all who worked to make it possible #modernarmor #metarmsandarmor #metmuseum #HEMA

Diminutive vambrace from a boy's armor, made for a very small child, perhaps as young as three or four judging by its size. Very well made and fully functional, German, late 16th century. Sweet little object (accession number 29.158.318) #metarmsandarmor #metmuseum #armor #childhood

Peaceful spot for a break on today's bike ride #newengland #pioneervalley #hatfield #cemeteries

And you thought your day was rough!

Can anyone identify the event in these images? Looks like a bond drive probably taking place in New York or D.C. in 1917. The soldier wears an American experimental prototype helmet and face defense along with a German heavy body armor. Original photos measure only about 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches and are part of the Bashford Dean archive of World War I papers #metarmsandarmor #metmuseum #themet #bodyarmor #WWI #modernarmor #nyc
