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.
Dear customers from Switzerland, we are very sorry that we cannot deliver swords, daggers, sabres, maces, combat axes, flails etc. to your country. We meet with bureaucratic obstacles at all products that either are or just look as a weapon again and again. We receive all consignments to Switzerland automatically back with an explanation "subject to the import permit." Our logistics partners told us the following: "both goods that are sold only to persons over 18 years and goods that merely look as weapons are subject to import permit. (For example: toy guns are sellable without restrictions in Switzerland, BUT are subject to import permit issued by the Swiss authorities!)". We have found only the following solutions so far: (1) The customer secures collection at our address in the Czech Republic himself (his logistic partner can handle this procedure better), (2) the customer gives us a delivery address in the EU. The disadvantage is that we have to charge the VAT tax in both cases.
