Pot Helmet

Product Code: 105077
Brand: Windlass
More Information
The inner circumference of this pot helm measures approx. 66-80 cm from the bowl to the bottom and the helmet is made of 18 gauge carbon steel.

A pot helm would have been worn over a bascinet with mail coif or a smaller helmet to provide the best head protection possible. From the middle of the 14th century, this type of helmet became increasingly popular among the warrior class throughout Europe. Our pot helm has a liner that adjusts to fit a variety of head sizes to improve its wearing comfort. The narrow slits function as eye slits, and the small holes serve as decorative ventilation. Examples of this type of helmet are on display at the Royal Armory in Leeds and the Royal Scottish Museum in Edinburgh.

We also have a helmet stand for this item as pictured which is usually £19- but if purchased with the helmet is only £15-
