This Great Bascinet originated around 1430. It was originally deposited in the Cathedral at Pamplona. Now it is displayed in The Museum of Fine Art Navarra in Spain. Great bascinets like this were the first helmets to be worn with complete suits of plate armour, and were used in battle up until the last decades of the Hundred Years War (1337-1453) between England and France.
This version of the famous Great Bascinet Pamplona endeavours to be one of the best done replicas as for its elaborated form. The long extended nose on the visor curves on lower neck protection. The visor is anchored to the hinges on the helmet bowl by means of two solid pegs. It can be tilted upward and worn in the up-tilted position. The front neck plate is partially movable. The lower edge of the visor sits inside the front neck plate. The plate can then hinge upwards without hitting the visor. The visor is perforated with many air holes in a “pasta strainer” pattern. The large neck protection sits on the shoulders, chest and back of the wearer´s neck. At the side view are front neck plate hinge lies almost vertically under the visor hinge.
This helmet can be made to measure after your measurements ‘1a’ to ‘1j’ in this measurement chart.
Please read our instructions, how to determine a helmet size correctly.
