This helmet is based on an original now in the British Museum, said to come from Naples. It is dated to the second half of the 14th C, and closely resembles helmets depicted being worn under helms in contemporary manuscripts. Its form and the cut of its margins make it distinctive and comfortable. Particularly noticeable is how movement of the neck is unimpeded by the high cut of the helmet’s back margin.
This helmet can be fit with a front-pivoting visor and/or an aventail, at extra cost.
