Sallet by Armour & Castings for sale

Postby Swifty on Sat Apr 16, 2011 3:47 pm

Hi all

I am selling a visored sallet helmet of the type typically made in north Italy in the second half of the 15thC for the Western European export market and is therefore suitable for use for Wars of the Roses (Tewkesbury, Bosworth, Stoke Field et al) or for any Anglo-Irish (or any other European for that matter) military interpretations of the same period. The helmet is made by Armour & Castings http://armourandcastings.com/index.php? ... at&catId=5 - on the link here it is the one being listed as 'Sallet 1450'. Btw Armour & Castings are unable to take any further orders at the minute due to over-demand.

It is a hand made piece welded in two halves with customised padding to fit a 58cm head. The helmet is of relatively large size so if padding were to be replaced it could fit a larger head but would not be suitable for folk with head sizes of 56cms or less. The visor which is held down in place by an authentic press-lever is removable via hidden screws and so therefore can double up as an archer's celata as an alternative.

Helmet is as new - bought for $300 US dollars + postage/will sell for €180 plus will deliver within the Dublin area or elsewhere in Ireland should our paths cross by premeditated coincidence! Please see pix below and PM me if interested - thanks for looking : )
