Ottoman Empire armor, chichak type helmet with krug (chest armor) worn over a zirah (chainmail shirt).  Possibly tombak (gilded copper) In the sixteenth century, a new type of Ottoman armor was created consisting of helmets, shields, and chanfrons (horse's head defenses) made entirely of gilt copper, known as tombak in Turkish. Because of the softness of copper, the armor must have been intended only for ceremonial use, possibly for the sultan's bodyguard.  Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.
