This barbuta helmet replicates a 15th century helm that was popular throughout Europe. The barbute was a "design throwback" to the very practical helmets of the ancient Corinthians. Both the Corinthians (and later Italians and Germans, and everyone else in Europe) heavily relied upon this style of helmet for infantry troops throughout the 1400's. Lined and fully wearable, antiqued/blackened stainless steel construction. Museum grade, comes with display stand.
