Sallets

The Sallet appeared during the middle of the 15th century and gradually replaced the bascinet throughout Europe. It was also known Celata, Salade and Schaller. It was popular in England, France and Italy and was almost universally worn in Germany. We offer one of the largest selections of Medieval Sallets available to buy in the UK. Our Sallets are available in both 14 and 16 gauge steel making them perfect for re-enactment. They are available with a variety of different styled face protection such as Bellows faced or Jawbone visors, or with no visors at all (for archers). We also offer a great selection of Bevors that were often worn with Sallets to offer complete head and throat protection.

  • War of the Roses Archer's Helmet

    This helmet is of the type known as an archer's helm. This shape was commonly seen during the Wars of the Roses in England from 1455 to 1485. The rounded top and flared neck guard provided protection from missiles coming from above, while the wide face opening allowed for the unimpeded vision necessary for an accurate aim.

    This premium helmet features an attached liner and chin-strap in natural leather. Reproduced in steel, it is fully wearable by most adults.

  • Open Face Sallet - 16 gauge

  • Late Transitional Sallet - 14 gauge

    1 Review(s)

    Near to the end of 15th-century, sallets began a transformation into the shapes known as "transitional". This replica is based on a piece known as A72 from the Wallace Collection dated on 1520 and is attributed to have been manufactured in the north of Italy. It was likely used with a gorget without bevor and belonged to the collection of the Count of Nieuwerkerke, and acquired by Sir Richard Wallace in 1871. This style of sallet can be seen in the painting by Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc in his piece “Castles and Warfare in the Middle Ages”.

    Made of 2mm steel with a 1.6mm steel faceplate. Steel thickness may vary due to the handcrafted methods used in its manufacture. The steel is untreated and may have rust. To protect the steel you may rub it with a mineral or synthetic oil. Leather chin strap included.

    Size M: 60-61 cm perimeter
    Size L: 63-64 cm perimeter

  • English Sallet - 18 gauge

    Our English Sallet is based on the Coventry Sallet, a surviving original from the 15th century currently on display in the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry. This helmet was made during the period of the Wars of the Roses, most likely by an Italian armourer working in England, and is made in the English style. Very few pieces of English made armour survive from this period and the Coventry Sallet is believed to be the only example of its type in England.

    This sallet is hand crafted from polished steel and features a (pin locked) hinged visor that can be raised for better vision. The back and sides of the helmet feature rows of decorative rivets and the inside is lined with an adjustable leather spider with adjustable leather chin strap.

    Inner Circumference: 63 cm
    Height: 30 cm
    Width: 23 cm
    Depth: 38 cm
    Weight: 2.034 kg
    Material: 18 Gauge Steel
