Product Description

Details

After 1450 the bascinet became increasingly obsolete on European battlefields, in favour of the armet and the sallet. The Great Bascinet, quite often with a perforated visor, was retained by knights for use in tournaments fought on foot. It was used throughout the 16th century, with variations used by the retinue of Henry VIII at the tournaments at the Field of the Cloth of Gold. Surviving examples of Great Bascinets were often hung above tombs as Funerary Helmets.
