Indian (sind) armor late 18th–early 19th century. Steel, brass, helmet, shirt, trousers, dastana (arm guards), boots. This distinctive armor, constructed of mail and steel plates decorated with embossed brass plaques, is thought to come from Sind, now a province of Southern Pakistan. The region was ruled by Mirs of the Talpur family from 1783 until 1843, when it was taken over by the British. Stibbert Museum, Florence Italy.
