Product information "German Visored Bascinet, Medieval Helmet, ca. 1370, 2 mm Steel"
German Bascinet, Medieval Helmet with Hinged Visor, ca. 1370, 2 mm Steel

The bascinet came up in the early 14th century. It evolved from the so-called cervelliere or secret helmet (a simple skull cap) and remained a popular helmet well into the 15th century throughout Central Europe.

The late medieval, battle-ready visored helmet we offer here is a replica of an original 14th c. bascinet (ca. 1370 AD) that is on display for people to admire at the German Historical Museum (Deutsches Historisches Museum or DHM) in Berlin, Germany.

It is made of 2 mm steel and equipped with a riveted face guard that is hinged at a single point at the centre of the brow. Especially in 14th c. Germany and northern Italy, this particular type of centre-hinged visor enjoyed great popularity. The visor features an approx. 16 cm long, 1 cm wide eye-slit as well as numerous round cutouts on its right side for proper ventilation. The sides and bottom edge of the helmet bowl are studded with so-called vervelles, small protruding rivets with holes that allow for the addition of chainmail aventail or camail (not included).

The blackened interior is fitted with an adjustable padded liner made of cotton fabric and attached to the bowl's edge with sturdy stitches. The 1 mm thick brown leather chin strap is adjustable and closes with a brass buckle. The helmet is also equipped with another leather strap to secure the klappvisor when in lowered position.

This fine, fully wearable knightly helm will make your transformation into a proud knight just perfect. Of course, it will also make a great, decorative addition to any helmet collector’s treasure chamber.
