Italian bellows face sallet

Italian bellows face sallet (also known as a salade). Popular throughout Europe in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. This helm is based on an example from the Wallace Collection (A72) dated to 1500-1520. It is an Italian export piece, and the tradition of the separate helmet bowl and large falling lame goes back as far as the 1470's as a rapid way of turning out a mass-produced open sallet - there are a lot of this type in the catalog of Arms and Armour from Rhodes. 14 gauge mild steel with a leather liner, suspension harness, and chin strap. Made by GDFB (Get Dressed For Battle).
