[ H5 ] Superb European Burgonet helmet circa mid to late 1600s to 1700s
Original old antique helmet circa mid to late 1600s to 1700s
This would be classed as a 2 piece skull with roped comb with a riveted pointed fall peak,deep hinged cheep pieces,,one hinge has been repaired,,its shown in the images above,,it was like that when I bought it,neck plate is quite a squared of style,The helmet is covered in a black paint or tar type substance & appears to have been there for 100 years or more,a couple of small spots where the covering has chipped off you can see the old rusted iron underneath,by rust I don't mean its got holes or is crumbling or anything like that,,the helmet is as strong as it ever was & will remain a solid stable helmet for the next 300 years or more,
This is a great piece of history,most likely German or Dutch origins,
The helmet came out of England over 30 years ago from a reputable dealer & had been in a collection of the purchaser until around 2009 /.2010
I have some good images so you can see in detail the surface of the helmet & the insides ,some were a little blurred so please email me if you need more clearer images,
