Armets like this were widely used in Italy, France, England and Spain. The first one came from Milano and was made in 1420. It was used until 16th century and its several derivations was in use as late as until 1620.
A curiosity not known by much people is that Avant armour (known in this way because this word is engraved on its borders) originally didn´t had an armet as nowadays is shown on the exposition. The original barbute was sold separately by the owner family and is no longer findable.
A typical armet is made up of four pieces: a bowl reinforced on the forehead, two cheek plates attached with hinges to the skull and a visor usually pointed. Cheek plates are closed by a pin and this was secured with a hook or metallic wire if the wearer wanted to make sure that it would not open on the battlefield.
The depicted special gorget developed for this armet is included in delivery.
