This style of helm and visor was common in the second half of the XIV Century and was probably used throughout Europe to a greater or lesser extent. This type of visor is often called a “round-nose” and the term “klappvisor” actually refers to the single centre hinge attachment. The rounded (somewhat egg-shaped) nature of the helm gives it great deflective potential and structural strength. This style of helm was more commonly seen in and around what is now Germany, Swizerland and Austria. This Bascinet and Visor is based on a piece that can be found in the collection of Castle Valeria located in Sion, Switzerland. The effigy of Hartmann of Kroneburg (d.1372) also depicts a Bascinet with a similar centre-hinge Klappvisor.
