BELLOWS FACE SALLET HELM 14G - AB0343/AB0344by GDFB 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, all fitting closely to the front and sides of the head. Sallets made in the Italian style, like our bellows face sallet, generally had short, rounded tails that fittedclosely to the back of the neck. The extended ‘bellows’ style visor on this example is a later development that is based on a transitional piece (between the sallet and the Maximilian-style close-helm of the 16th century) that is dated to around 1490. Crafted by GDFB this medieval helmet in 14 gauge steel has an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap. Although designed for action in LARP or Medieval battles, this beautiful helm is just as powerful on display while whooing fair maidens within the comforts of your castle.
