Armet of Philip I. of Castille
Does anyone have any pictures of the original armet that belonged to Philip the 1st of Castille and is now in Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna? The same one that Mr. Jeff Wasson used as a basis for an armet with wrapper that won the AotM (Helms) March-April 2011 competition?
Here is an original thread from The Armour Archive:;t=134253
With a quick search, I found this. Is this it?

From our Spotlight topic: The Sallet of Philip I, circa 1500

Looks to be completely different, but also belonging to Philip I.
I dont think that is the original that Jeff's armet was based on.
Here is a complete armour from Mr. Wasson's website :
Jeff's helm and the associated harness are based on a surviving half harness attributed to Maximilian I, built c. 1500 by an unknown armorer (as far as I'm aware). Here's a photograph I took of the armor in 2006:

thats it! thank you very much!
Here's my version, not very different from Gregory's, taken in 2008. The museum catalogue gives its inv. no. as A7, made for Philip I (the Handsome) by Lorenz Helmschmid in Augsburg in c.1495-1500.

Yup, had to check the catalogue again. It's attributed to Maximilian I in an Osprey book and that's why I've always got that stuck in my head. Definitely for Philip I, though! My apologies. Nice to be reminded that it's got an attributed maker, too. It is beautiful armor.
