The Bellows Face Sallet Helm, or salade, was a popular and elegant headpiece in use across much of Europe throughout the second half of the 15th century. Various forms developed during this time, all fitting closely to the front and sides of the head. Sallets made in the Italian style, like our Bellows Face Sallet Helm, generally had short, rounded tails that fitted closely to the back of the neck. The extended ‘bellows’ style visor on this example is a later development that is based on a transitional piece (between the sallet and the Maximilian-style close-helm of the 16th century) that is dated to around 1490. Crafted in 14 gauge steel with an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap.
The Bellows Face Sallet is a Functional and Battle Ready Medieval Helmet.
