Incredible Example Of An Iron Cavalier Helmet 16th – 17th Century


Questions about this piece?


An amazing and rare example of an iron cavalier helmet with a wide brim that is curved upwards on the one side. The domed pot is nailed in two halves, and the rim is fastened with rivets to the extended edge below. Inside is a leather trim and the curved part of the rim has three bronze crowns nailed to it´s edge. A thin cylinder is attached to one side of the dome, and a threaded screw fastens the rod with a spatula protruding from the front. Helmets like this were once conceived as pikeman helmets – hence the spear-shaped front decoration – although they were later combined with costume armor worn by wealthy supporters of kings. All parts are original.
