The Nasal Helmet was a type of combat helmet characterised by the possession of a projecting bar covering the nose and thus protecting the centre of the face; it was of Western European origins and was used from the Early Middle Ages until the High Middle Ages. The helmet appeared throughout Western Europe late in the 9th century, and became the predominant form of head protection, replacing previous types of helmet. From being uniformly conical in shape, the skull of the nasal helmet became more varied during the 12th century. For most of the century nasal helmets with a forward deflected apex, often called the 'Phrygian cap' shape, were in widespread use. It is possible that the deflection of the apex of the skull was the natural result of making the front of the helmet thicker than the rest of the helmet during the process of raising the skull from sheet iron. We are proud to present our impressive, beautiful, actual working replica Nasal Helmet. This helm is very-much a typical Norman helm. It features a simple nose guard, as well as a chainmail drape that hangs down the back and sides, adding additional protection to the wearer. As a warrior, you could not do much better than this helmet, and as a collector, you could not ask for a finer specimen to use as a centerpiece. Our Norman / Saxon Helmet comes with a display stand included, so you can easily display it in any room. You are sure to get many admiring comments wherever you place this impressive, historic Norman Helmet. Our museum quality helmet make a great gift for the history lover and create the ultimate focal point in any home. Now you can own a piece of history with our unbeatable price!
