Maximilian Armet Helm – 16 Gauge
This style of helm was worn in the 16th century in Germany and takes it name from emperor Maximilian I who was emperor of the Holy Roman Empire between 1493 and 1519. It developed as an alternative style to Gothic plate which was also popular in the late 15th to early 16th century.
This style of helm developed from the Italian bellows style visored bascinets. The helm fully encloses the head of the wearer and hinges shut at the front of the chin and is held in place with a push latch.
This helm is made from 16 gauge steel and includes an adjustable leather suspension liner and chin strap with solid brass buckle.
This helm is based on a helm in the Royal armouries collection.
Suitable for early 16th century Renaissance reenactment and LARP personas between the period of 1510 to 1525
The helm has a circumference of 68cm which enables the wearer to also fit a suitable padded coif or cap.
Wooden helmet stand shown available separately.
