Description

14 Gauge Steel

Historically Accurate

Great for Re-enactors

Catalog Description: 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 artefacts 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.

Choose from two sizes:

Standard - Head Circumference: up to 25"

Large - Head Circumference: up to 26"
