The barbute or celeta was developed in Italy during the 15th century. These helmets were popular throughout Europe and offered an alternative to the more restrictive sallet. The extended sides protected the neck and jaw, dispensing with the need for a separate bevor or gorget. Our open face celeta is based on an original from the Wallace Collection in London and is crafted in 14 gauge steel with an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap.
