£124.37

Be the first to review this product

The armour is probably the earliest surviving product of Henry VIII's Almain armourers at his royal workshop. Designed for the Field of Cloth of Gold tournament, this close helmet was one of the earliest designed to turn on the collar to prevent neck injuries from heavy blows but still allow some peripheral vision.


English, 1520

Details

The armour is probably the earliest surviving product of Henry VIII's Almain armourers at his royal workshop. Designed for the Field of Cloth of Gold tournament, this close helmet was one of the earliest designed to turn on the collar to prevent neck injuries from heavy blows but still allow some peripheral vision.

Drawing upon the outstanding quality and range of the Royal Armouries collections, we are proud to present this range of fine quality replicas. At each stage of the process, from the initial selection to the last details of the prototypes, the Museum’s experts on armour and edged weapons have been personally involved. These replicas are impressive in both their look and feel, accurately capturing the dimensions, materials and processes of the originals with tremendous attention to detail. The Royal Armouries is delighted that enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy these objects ‘at first hand’.
