Description

14 Gauge Steel

Historically Accurate

Great for Re-enactors

Catalog Description: The sallet 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 they all fitted closely to the front and sides of the head but many particularly those in the German style flared away from the back of the neck and had extended tails some very long and occasionally articulated that swept back to a point. Most sallets covered the face to just below the nose and had a slit across the front through which the wearer could see. Some had fixed face protection often referred to as a tipping sallet whilst others had moveable visors. They were often worn together with a bevor because the sallet itself often gave no protection to the jaw and throat.

This helm replicates an original piece found in the church at Witton-le-Wear in County Durham England. The large ornate rivets that attach the liner to the back of the helm are an unusual feature replacing the more commonly used dome-headed steel rivets. Both the helm and the moveable visor are made from 14 gauge steel and it comes complete with an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap.

Choose from two sizes:

Standard - Head Circumference: up to 25"

Large - Head Circumference: up to 26"
