Description

am59 Polish Cavalry Helmet Zischagge helmet circa 1600s
This example is larger overall, The skull is made of 12 overlapping plates ,The articulated neck defence is of 3 plates , sadly the small spike is missing from the top of the helmet, no big deal as it still displays nicely, the helmet will clean up quite well, however i do not touch them, this will get a wipe over of oil & that will be the extent of my work with it.
Because of its location Poland was a strategic military force opposing the Ottoman Turks. This was best demonstrated in 1683 when Grand Vizier Merzifonlu Kara Mustafa Pasha laid siege to Vienna, defended by a force of 15,000, with 170,000 troops and 70,000 in reserve. King John Sobieski mobilized an army, ultimately numbering less than half the Turks, and waging a cavalry charge of 18,000, the largest ever in history, routed the Turks. This helmet most likely served in that action as i doubt there would have been a great deal of others in reserve but i may be wrong.
