The inner circumference of this Gothic Knight helmet measures approx. 69 cm.
Helmets like this imposing one from the 14th century would have been worn over a bascinet or a smaller helmet to provide the best head protection possible. This type of helmet is depicted in a number of contemporary illustrations, which says a lot for its popularity. The riveted cross fleury is decorative but also provides extra protection for the face. The ring at the top of this Gothic Knight Helmet from the 14th century is for decoration only. When a noble lady gave her knight a token of her favor, he would fasten it to this ring to turn the entire ensemble into a crest. The helmet is made of 18 gauge carbon steel.
We also have a helmet stand for this item as pictured which is usually £19- but if purchased with the helmet is only £15-
