  • 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.

    Height: 30 cm
    Width: 23 cm
    Depth: 38 cm
    Weight: 2.034 kg

    The barbute (barbuta in Italian) was a helmet that was popular in Italy during the 15th century but less so throughout the rest of Europe. Our barbute is a replica of one on display in the Musee' de Armee, Paris. It probably dates from between 1460 -1470 and was made in the Lombard town of Missaglia.

    Our barbute is hand crafted from 16 gauge steel and features an adjustable leather liner and buckled leather chin strap.
