At the end of the 15th century sallets achieved their transformation phase before the armet. This Late transitional sallet is based on an original sallet A72 from the Wallace Collection dated 1520, made by armourers in north Italy. This sallet was probably used with gorget without bevor. It belonged to the collection of the Count of Nieuwerkerke and was acquired by Sir Richard Wallace in 1871.
This Late transitional sallet boasts to had been painted by Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc in his “Castles and Warfare in the Middle Ages”. This is a celebrity among transitional sallets!
The effective gauge of the steel plate may vary due to the handcrafted way of manufacturing.

The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
