Holy smokes! That's some fabulous armor, both in design and fabrication.

FWIW, while some of the armor that I have viewed in museums around the world has been engraved, most of the ornamental decoration has been acid etched. Then there is the Negroli type of parade armor that is mostly chasing and repousse with some engraved detail.

Good luck,
