  • Product Description

    To my mind the Corinthian helmet is the best helmet design of the pre-modern era. It gives excellent facial protection, even guarding much of the neck: yet vision and breathing is left totally unimpaired. Unlike later Roman designs, which had things like visors and protruding bolts for a blade to catch into, this Ancient Greek helmet was supremely deflective. It would take another fifteen hundred years before helmets were to become this clever again. But then again: what would you expect from a culture that built computers to predict planetary revolutions, that worked out the circumference of the globe, and carved out an Empire that stretched from Europe to India – of course their helmets were excellent!

    This helmet would make a masterfully atmospheric  decorative piece for any room, but it’s also comfortable to wear: it comes with an integrated (height adjustable) suspension liner and chinstraps.
