I was cruising the web and stumbled across a helmet that I have never seen attributed to the Tudor time period.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/birmingham/content/image...70x320.jpg

It's the one on the far left.
I have tried to find other pics or descriptions but the museum where the pic was taken has changed exhibits and I am at a lose.

Any ideas?

If you are refering to the one with the nasal bar it is 17th Century Zischägge helmet which could be both simply made and highly decorated as in this case. http://www.metmuseum.org/collections/search-t...s/40004814

by a thousand unforseen circumstances, even when one has thorougly taken all
precautions that the most perfect military skill allows for."
