Armet and gorget Avant, around 1440

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.

  • Made of 1,6mm steel with 2mm steel bowl. The effective gauge of steel may vary due to the handcrafted way of manufacturing.
  • Leather chin strap included.
  • Standard size = 63~64 cm Perimeter

Included in these categories: Armets, Visor helmets

    Absolutely the best value for a Armet. Craftsmanship is superb and the included gorget wrapper is a huge plus.

    Reakce na 1 (Mark Priest) HA! :) I react to my own comment. When I saw this helm I instantly thought of that Glasgow harness, but I've never heard of it called the Avant. When I saw the leg armor suggested (which is perfect copy I think!) I had to read the description. I only know the suit with the barbute, but its always been my favorite type and example of armour! Its almost weird how happy I am to have found this site on accident! My new favorite! I know how much junk is out there, and I know these are GREAT examples! :D
