A Reproduction Henry VIII Gun-Shield

Of russeted steel, with shaped brass barrel mount and five brass rosettes on the outside, the interior lined in leather and with breech-loading matchlock mechanism mounted on the grip, and spirally-grooved barrel with pierced grill above for vision. 

45.5 cm diameter. 

This appears to be based on the gun-shield from Henry VIII’s military stores and now in the Royal Armouries, Leeds (inv. no. V.99), which is one of a group thought to have been made by Giovanni Battista and his company of Ravenna, presumably for a royal bodyguard.

A Victorian replica? IDK, but I’m posting it.
