The helmet most associated with the conquistadors and Spanish Colonial America. This example 10 ½” height, forged in own piece with roped crest, domed skull and elegant roped edge brim, deeply curved with upturned points. The right brim struck with a maker’s mark. The skull base with a row of rivets securing the remnants of a liner band within. Evidently originally blued, the surface with a good deep brown patina. Two dents to the right side. Short crack to the left brim resulting from forged construction which is typical in early armor which was produced from wrought iron. An elegant example of the helmet worn by the soldiers who served the Spanish crown in their quest to extract New World gold, and equally suitable for the pirates who combed the Caribbean in pursuit of the ships carrying the gold.
