Mini sugarloaf helmet on stand

Product code: 30164013\1

Availability: In stock

Beautifully hand crafted, this miniature mini sugarloaf helmet with stand would make a wonderful present for those interested in medieval history.

The sugar loaf helmet was named as such because of the similarity the shape had with 'sugar loaves' which is what sugar was traditionally sold in. The sugar loaf helmet was a later variant of the Great Helm, and it was used throughout the 13th and 14th Centuries.

The helmet is most associated with the crusades and the style saw use in may famous battles of the period. The addition of a domed top was an improvement on the Great Helm, as the domed shape was better at deflecting blows to the head compared to the flat topped Great Helms.

  • Dimensions: height 19cm (on stand), width 9.5cm (on stand), weight 410g.
  • Handcrafted in steel and brass and comes complete with a wooden stand.

  • Product Information
    • This stunning hand crafted Mini sugarloaf Helmet with stand would make a wonderful addition to your medieval arms and armour collection.

      The helmet is made from steel and brass to create its distinctive look, with a bronze cross, breathing holes and a domed top. The helmet is most associated with the crusades of the 14th and 15th Centuries where the style of helmet was used in many famous battles by the crusading armies. The domed head was a marked improvement on the Great Helm, as it was better suited to help deflect blows away from the head as opposed to the flat top of a Great Helm.

      • Made from steel and bronze with a hand crafted finish.
      • Handcrafted in steel and brass and comes complete with a wooden stand.
