This 14th – Early 15th Century visored Houndskull Bascinet is durably crafted from 16 gauge steel and lined on the interior with an adjustable leather suspension liner. The design is based on several different historical sources, including a 1407-1408 painting by Spinello Aretino, the fresco in the Affresco camera Pinta in Spoleto, Italy, and the manuscript “La prima deca” by Tito Livio dated from circa 1373 and nowadays in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana at Milan among others.
The interior is blackened and the interior leather suspension liner can be adjusted to tailor and adjust the fit of the helmet to the head. The helmet is completed with a chin strap of leather with a brass buckle to secure it to the head.
