Tell about this item to your friends:

Pothelm, Vashelm - The Casque, or Pothelm, appeared in the late twelfth century, and survived across the thirteenth. It was the first headgear to cover the entire head since classical times, and developed from earlier helms that had nose guards. At its most simple, the casque was simply a pot, with an eye slit and breathing holes, although more elaborate versions included a moveable visor.  The Casque also saw the first decoration of the helm for centuries, as the complete coverage of the face made the knight otherwise anonymous, and thus played a part in the development of heraldry.     Hand-crafted from 14ga mild steel     Painted inside.     Polished     Padded-liner included     Brass trimming eyeslots     Hourglasses holes on visor     Hand made steel buckles     High quality leather straps Producing time: up to 2 months.
