Hello everyone,

This bascinet http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/download.php?id=31268, according to Grzegorz Kulig http://www.myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?t...ight=wawel is from Wawel castle. Can anyone provide more information on it, especially dating ?

Looks very similar to the Italian one in Vienna museum...

Both bascinets seem to share similarities except for a few things with the visor. My best guess on the date of that Bascinet is early 15th century (1400-1410) and looks to be made in Milan.
