Between 1450 and 1500 no one went to war without wear at least one head protection, usually barbute or sallet. There were many different designs depending on the origin of the item but some as the one shown here had simple but effective designs. The psychological effect caused by sallets because of their "dehumanized look" was a distinctive sign on the mercenary troops which not only were appreciated by their dangerousness but also because of their dangerous look. Similar designs to this sallet are shown in several museums and mainly dates from the 15th century. Although all of them have visors with ventilation holes to enhance breathing in a wide range of designs, we´ve decided to maintain ours without holes to allow client customization.
