Knights In Shining Armor

Armor and weapons from the Museo Stibbert in Florence, Italy, is on display at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California. The exhibit, “Knights in Armor,” runs through January 13, 2019. The Museo Stibbert ‘s collection of more than 50,000 items includes over 16,000 pieces of  armor and weaponry focusing on European, Japanese and Islamic armor from the 15th to 19th centuries. The collection belonged to Frederick Stibbert, an avid collector of armor and art, who was born in Florence in 1838. When Stibbert died in 1906, he willed his museum and collection to the municipality of Florence.
