    That helmet-type is called a "Salade"... In WWI as Germany sought to develop the first Stahlhelm (M16), they deliberately looked to the Salade for design inspiration...You could say that the Salade is the grandfather of the German Stahlhelm as we know it today...

    Fascinating information.

    The metal working skills of the artisans who made the helmets and armour shown in this thread are extraordinary and superb. I was recently looking at other examples in the Fitzwilliam museum in Cambridge and marveling at how such beautiful and complex shapes could be created with simple hand tools. Thank you to SK for showing them.

    Regards, Philip

    I have a friend who is a qualified armourer, ie the true meaning of the word, the types of armour he has created not only for customers, museums and films are excellent ,and he uses old methods of shaping, heating ,beating, rivetting etc, he even made a suit of armour for Arnold Swartzenegger, but the film never got off the drawing board, it was to be called "Crusader"

    Hi Phillip, you are welcome, if you ever go to Paris, go the museum were Napoleon ( grofaz) is buried they have room after room full of these Knights /armour etc, and a far greater supply of German uniforms/Militaria than the German History Museum. but the GHM does have Fred the Greats, Bismarks and all 3 Kaisers uniforms, will post pics at a later date.
    Regards SK
