Jacob Halder (died 1608)
Works of Art

Jacob Halder is first recorded in a list of Almain armourers of about 1557. In 1531 an armourer of the same name, possibly his father, is recorded as residing in Augsburg in the house of Anna, widow of the armourer Braccius Helmschmid. Halder became Master Workman of the Almain Armoury at Greenwich in 1576, in succession to John Kelte (or Kelke), which office he held until his death in 1608.
