ANTIQUED SPANGENHELMNobleWares Image of Antiqued Viking Spangenhelm AH2191N by Hanwei AH2191N Hanwei
The Spangenhelm (AH2191N) is based on an 11th century piece. This style of conical helmet construction, whereby overlapping metal straps or "spangen" were riveted to dished metal plates to form a skull cap, is known to date back to the 6th century and was used as late as the 15th century. Many can be seen on the famous Bayeaux Tapestry, which records scenes from the 1066 CE Battle of Hastings. Our Spangenhelm, features a solid "nasal" that is joined to reinforced "eyebrows" which scroll across the fore plate and resolve into twin dragon heads of Viking style. The 18 gauge stainless steel has a beautiful antiqued and slightly distressed finish for a realistic museum quality appearance. This Spangenhelm is provided with a padded liner and buckled leather chin strap and is fully wearable. The unique polygonal wood hemet stand is 14-3/4 inches tall equipped with a soft felted base to protect any display surface. The stand includes a suede presentation cloth and engraved historical information plate making a striking display for any home or office.

The Spangenhelm was a popular European war helmet design of the Early Middle Ages. The name is of German origin. Spangen refers to the metal strips that form the framework for the helmet and could be translated as clips, and -helm simply means helmet. The strips connect three to six steel or bronze plates. The frame takes a conical design that curves with the shape of the head and culminates in a point. The front of the helmet may include a nose protector (a nasal). Older spangenhelms often include cheek flaps made from metal or leather. Spangenhelms may incorporate chain mail as neck protection. Some spangenhelms include eye protection in a shape that resembles modern eyeglass frames. Other spangenhelms include a full face mask.
