  • Most likely, the original of our replica was made by him too, because it was "captured" at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and taken to south London with the Jacobite prisoners. He's now at the Royal Weapons Museum in the Tower of London.

    This excellent museum replica has a removable central tip that, if mounted, makes the shield become an evil weapon.

    It features a bronze protrusion in the center, decorative brass rivets and beautiful Celtic ornaments engraved on leather. The targe is made with hand-dyed natural leather that is fixed by brass rivets.
