English c17th Century Funerary Helmet

In English chapels in the 16th and 17th century, Funerary Helmets were hung above the tombs of military heroes and important nobles. Though often made using the deceased’s actual helmet, these were never intended to be worn, they were intended only to symbolise the deceased’s family’s military and noble standing.

This helmet is especially rare, as most have a ‘Barred visor’, whereas this helmet has a beautifully exaggerated Ventail, echoing the Greenwich close-helmets of the period. The skull of this helmet is a genuine 17th century piece and is almost certainly from a ‘Closed Burgonet’… probably the deceased’s actual helmet that saw combat during The English Civil War.

Genuine Funerary helmets such as this rarely reach the market, because it would seem that most were converted back to their military form using reproduction elements back in the 19th century… purely for commercial reasons.

The value of this exceptionally rare piece is it’s historical integrity.

Fluted Cuirassier close helmet c17th

Stylistically dating from the early to mid 17th century, this reproduction cavalry Savoyard close-helmet represents the zenith of 17th century black-and-white cavalry armour.

These helmets were made for ‘The thirty years war’ and for export for use in The English Civil War.
