The European Pigface Bascinet is circa 1390. This helm style became popular in the late 13th century widely replacing the Great Helm because of its close fit styling. Towards the late 14th century the long snouted appearance had earned it the English nickname Hounskull, or “Pig-faced bascinet”.

This piece can be worn or used as decoration. No lining or suspension is provided, this allows for individual customizing. It is a full adult size helmet.
