ITALIAN ARMET WITH RONDEL, MIDDLE XV CENTURY

In front of you is Italian armet - one of the most interesting and versatile middle ages helmet adorning the rich collection of the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

This helmet reached us, having lost his visor and rondel in the darkness of the ages, but we recreated them with the visor and rondel of his brother Armet, who also posing in the Metropolitan Museum.

This armet is a part of The Avant Armour, one of the oldest near-complete armors in the world. It is dating about 1450-1485, was crafted in Corio workshop, Milano, and was belong to Fon Matsch, the owner of Churburg Castle in 1450 and you can see him in Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glazgo, Scotland.

Armet was the typical medieval knight helmet of the fully armored equestrian knight throughout most of the XV century. Its smooth, compact, rounded form typifies the streamlined appearance of XV century Italian armor in general.

Armet helmet has unusual and ingenious to his time construction, with cheeckpieces hinged to the bowl that opened to admit the head.

There are few "Armet schticks":

  • He got spherical dome (earlier cavalry helmets had a spheroconic dome)
  • Chin made of two drop-down cheeckpieces, connected by a pin in closed position
  • The second visor, reclining on the head
  • The helmet fitted the head and neck of the owner really tight
  • Most armets (except early) were equipped with protection of the neck and collarbone.
  • A few more words about rondel - circular piece of metal used to defend the back of the neck. Truth that we still don’t know exactly why armets firstly appeared without them, then developed at many shapes and styles, and then rondels mystically disappeared a few decades later.

We want to believe, historians find it at some time, but it is hard to believe;)
