The Armet, German type consists of four pieces: the skull, the two hinged cheek guards which lock at the front, and the visor. A reinforcement for the bottom half of the face, known as a wrapper, can be added. Its straps attached to a metal disc at the base of the skull piece called a rondel.

Armets reached their height of popularity during the 15th and 16th centuries when knights in medieval Europe wore plate armor into battle. Movable face and cheek guards allowed the wearer to close the helmet, thus fully protecting the head from blows. The armet, German type was most popular in Italy, and in Hungary as it was the first kingdom in Europe after Italy to inherit the Renaissance during the reign of Matthias Corvinus of Hungary.

This helmet can be made to measure after your measurements ‘1a’ to ‘1j’ in this measurement chart.

    This is a museum piece! Great work. Something to pass down to children as heirlooms. I would be proud to have it so I'm saving up for one!
