The helmet in the pictures is apparently Ottoman, from Lepanto (?). Could some armor experts please explain:
1. What type of helmet is that;
2. Why/how did it end up with the Turks, in case they didn't make it (the style looks quite European to me - with the bevor/gorget and all).

That is definitely a 17th century (or late 16th?) burgonet. Beyond that, I have no clue. Pretty neat though!

Could it be a presentation piece made on behalf of a European potentate to be sent as a gift to the Porte?
