T Face Barbute Helmet 14 Gauge Med. LAST ONE AB0335
THIS HELMET IS RETIRED AND OUT OF PRODUCTION. WE ONLY HAVE ONE LEFT IN STOCK.
The barbute or celeta was developed in Italy during the 15th century but its roots can be traced back to ancient Greece and its development may have been influenced by a growing interest at the time in artifacts of the ancient world. These helmets were popular throughout Europe and offered an alternative to the more restrictive sallet. They had no visor, fitted closely to the head and neck and the sides often extended almost to the shoulders and round in front of the face. The extended sides protected the neck and jaw, dispensing with the need for a separate bevor or gorget. Our open face celeta is based on an original from the Wallace Collection in London and our T-faced barbute replicates the helmet adorning the ‘Avant’ armour housed at the Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow. Both are constructed from 14 gauge steel plate and are supplied with an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap.
