18th Century Parade Burgonet £950




An interesting piece of antique anachronism. Whilst burgonets are a type of helmet most common in the 16th to 17th century they were still used as a piece of parade headgear for centuries. This piece likely dates to the mid to late 18th century as a form of ceremonial or parade uniform. The shell is made of hammered steel and has a decorated filed raised edge. Ther are attachments for a cloth liner to the inside, sadly as is common with armour the rivets appear to have been replaced for display, these are likely a Victorian addition.


This helmet can be yours for £950 or best offer.
