Bucket Helm of the Knights of Kornburg


This Bucket Helm is a replica of a late medieval funeral helmet of the “von Kornburg” family as it was found in the Church of all Saints in Kleinschwarzenlohe (Germany). The family of Rieter Kornburg (= knight of Kornburg) was a patrician family that resided since 1361 in Nuremberg. The helmet is dated to about the same time (about 1375) and was probably made by an armourer from Nuremberg. It is now on display in the Germanic National Museum in Nuremberg. More information...

Although the great helm offered vastly superior protection than previous helmets, such as the nasal helm and spangenhelm, it limited the wearer's peripheral vision, and in addition to being heavy, the mass-produced form (flat-topped without ventilation holes) provided little ventilation and could quickly overheat in hot weather. Knights usually wore the great helm over a mail coif (hood) sometimes in conjunction with a close-fitting iron skull cap known as a cervelliere. The later development of the cervelliere, the bascinet, was also worn beneath the great helm; men-at-arms would often remove the great helm after the first clash of lances, for greater vision and freedom of movement in melee combat. The bascinet had a mail curtain attached, a camail or aventail, which superseded the coif. Mail throat and neck defences such as these were made obsolete when plate gorgets were introduced, around 1400.

Velice, ale velice pěkná a kvalitní práce, za tu cenu si dovolím tvrdit, že je to přilba, která se vysoce vyplatí jak na kvalitu tak i na vzhled, ale to už jsem psal. Jen bych dodal, po přepravě ke člověku co si to objednal tak sem měl prodřenou krabici od nýtků, byť byla dobře zabalená, ale nebojte na kvalitě to vůbec neubralo.
