Burgonet 1580-90

Burgonet. 2 piece skull with origninally smooth surface. Extremely high, rear-swept comb. Pointed brim and tail integral to the bowl, each with rolled, roped and recessed borders. Small, original cheek plates with rolled, roped and recessed borders. The form of the bowl is remeniscent of morions at the time with aggressively pointed brow and neck. Shows signs of significant pitting and later cleaning. Rivets and decorative washers replaced. There seem to be some signs of likely original deep scratches from the cleanup of the piece at the back next to the crease and at the base of the comb.

Weight: 3 pounds 5.2 ounces (1510g). Thickness generally .030-040, some areas a little thicker.
