Domed skull with high relief eyes, brows and nose modeled. Pierced terminal nasal bar secured with a moustache shaped bar. The top with medially ridged spike and pair of curved horns. Three triangular peak mail fall of butted links. Spotty oxidation on frosty surface. The whole with evidence of gold and silver koftgari decoration quite uniform and somewhat weak. The motifs include foliate filled lattice and flower buds. Helmets of this form are well documented including in museum collections. However, they rarely come to market and our search found none available elsewhere.
