This Fleur Cross Medieval Round Shield brings to life the wheel-shape of the shield, with subtle touches of detail. Crafted from hardwoods and set with a metal rim, this shield is fully capable of deflecting blows and parrying strikes, making its wielder that much more defensively sound when it comes to combat on the field of medieval battle. The center of the shield is set with a cast-iron cross pattern, as opposed to a central boss, which features fleur de lis shapes at each terminal. The shield possesses a 24 inch diameter.
