This burgonet is based on 17th century originals that were made by the London armorers Rafe Boulter and Sylvester Keene. They co-operated in weapon production until 1648. The original is nowadays part of the collection of the Royal Armouries in Leeds. This burgonet is a replica of one of the most frequently used cavalry helmets from the British Civil War (1642-1649). Helmets like this were used all over Europe. On the British isles, the helmet is also called 'lobster pot'. This helmet is suitable for a head circumference up to 62 cm.
