Armor reference quotes:⚔️
🛡 Glorfindel
"There stood the house of the Golden Flower who bore a rayed sun upon their shield, and their chief Glorfindel bore a mantle so broidered in threads of gold that it was diapered with celandine as a field in spring; and his arms were damascened with cunning gold."
Tolkien, J. R. R.. The Fall of Gondolin (182 GRAND) (pp. 77-78). HarperCollins Publishers. Kindle Edition.
🛡 Ecthelion
"Ecthelion, Lord of the Fountains, at that time Warden of the Great Gate. All in silver was he clad, and upon his shining helm was set a spike of steel pointed with a diamond; and as his esquire took his shield it shimmered as if it were bedewed with drops of rain, that were indeed a thousand studs of crystal."
Tolkien, J. R. R.. The Fall of Gondolin (182 GRAND) (p. 226). HarperCollins Publishers. Kindle Edition.
🛡 Tuor
"Upon a time the king caused his most cunning artificers to fashion a suit of armour for Tuor as a great gift, and it was made of Gnome-steel overlaid with silver; but his helm was adorned with a device of metals and jewels like to two swan-wings, one on either side, and a swan’s wing was wrought on his shield; but he carried an axe rather than a sword, and this in the speech of the Gondothlim he named Dramborleg, for its buffet stunned and its edge clove all armour."
Tolkien, J. R. R.. The Fall of Gondolin (182 GRAND) (p. 60). HarperCollins Publishers. Kindle Edition
