Secret Helmet, Cervelliere

The cervelliere is a round, close-fitting steel skull cap. It was worn as a helmet during the medieval period. It was first introduced during the late 12th and was the primary head protection for Crusaders at that time and was worn either alone or over chainmail. By the late 13th century a great helm would usually be worn over a cervelliere. The back of the helmet grew longer over time and evolved into the bascinet. Cerveillieres were worn throughout the medieval period and even during the Renaissance. Cheap and easy to produce, they were much used by commoners and non-professional soldiers who could not afford more advanced protection.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

My glove size is 9. What size of gauntlets should I order if I want to wear padded leather gloves inside?

If you want to wear un-padded leather gloves in the gauntlets, order both in the same size (in your case size 9). With padded leather gloves we recommend to order the gauntlets always one size higher (so in your case 10). If you discover that the goods do not fit after receiving it, you can exchange it for free. You only pay the shipping costs.
