I came across this page ....

http://www.stockholmtown.com/templates/page____4793.aspx

but Swedish is not something I have much of a clue about......mabye Elling Pollen or someone can identify this helm,,,,I assume its from the Vasa ship ? I certinally have never seen it or anything like it before.......perhaps I should buy more books ! Is there any other Armour associated with this helm or is it a solo piece ?
Thanks !

Hi Merv,

I don't know wich kind of helmet this is (only that it is was worn by Gustav Eriksson Wasa), but I do know reading this article will not help much. The article is a short summary of Gustav Eriksson Vasa and the Vasa families lifes. The helmet is not mentioned.

I find it very hard to belive that this helmet comes from the wasa ship. More likely it is a part of the royal armoury of stockholm.

Regards,

/Ville

The helmet is called Gustav Vasas crowned helmet and was bought as a part of a purchase the king made in germany in 1540.

The helmet is part of the royal armoury of stockholm inventarii.

I have a few pics of a harness which belonged to Gustav Vasa, and some of harnesses which belonged to his sons, which I took during a visit to the royal armoury. I'll see how well I can get the attachment function to agree with me here...

The ships was named after the Royal House btw, Gustav II Adolph (who ordered it built) being Gustav Vasa's grandson.

First some more of the "old man's" suit then one pic of a pair of suits which belonged to his sons (if I recall correctly, the one in the background would be for Erik XIV, and the pone in the foreground originally made for duke Magnus, later refitted for a shorter person, believed to be Johan III), and finally two pics of a harness commissioned by Erik XIV.

EDIT: seems the preview flipped the order of the photos, but the submitted version didn't, or some such. Maybe just me mixing things up. Anyway, the order of the photos seems to have been reversed.

Thanks for posting these pics ! Certinally more that a weekends work to make those !! Eek! I guess they sort of go with the Ship though in that they are so very decorated......the court of Gustav Vasa must have had a lot of wealth !
Cheers !
