The Pigface Bascinet helmet or Hounskull (from the German "Hound's Hood") was a popular helmet from the 14th Century as was worn by both English and French knights at famous battles such as Crecy (1346) and Poitiers (1356). A depiction of this style of bascinet can be seen on the monumental brass of Sir Hugh Hastings in St Mary's Church in Elsing, Norfolk. This miniature bascinet is hand crafted in steel and brass and has a pivoting visor like the original. Comes complete with wooden stand.
