This calotte, or bucket helmet, is based on an original depicted in the Spanish Alphonso Psalter. Bucket helmets like this were worn all over Europe between the 12th and 13th century.

Maintenance & care
Avoid rust by frequently greasing your armor. You can easily remove rust with black sandpaper

This item is handmade in a limited amount. Each item is unique. Finish and sizes can slightly vary.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result.
