1600s German morion helmet with embossed fleur-de-lis pattern. 1032 grams, 13-1/2" x 9-1/2" x 10". A type of helmet originally from Castile, its introduction contemporaneous with the exploration of the New World and therefore possibly supplied by conquistadors to their foot soldiers. This example is German-made with a high comb, blackened surface containing highlighted embossed fleur-de-lis (originally bright but now faded), rope edge border, decorative rivets with brass rosettes that once secured the leather liner in place, hand-hammered metal surface with folded and riveted seam construction. Very good original and uncleaned condition, some rivets missing, recently found in a small Pennsylvania private museum. With photo-certificate.
