Product Description

A rare and unusual c1900 Argentinian Officers Spiked leather helmet.

Built as more or less an exact copy of the similar period German pickelhaube, the helmet is made of leather with brass fittings. This example is an officers version with brass chin scales, taller spike, cross spike base with securing stars and a rear strengthening spine.

The helmet plate is made of stamped brass, but it has the Argentinian national emblem of hands holding the Revolutionary bonnet below a rising sun. The national cockades are light blue and white painted (similar, but opposite to the Bavarian colours) and the inside has a leather sweat band with a partially detached silk liner.

Condition is quite good and this is the only example we have come across.

The helmet was part of a group of headgear that have come from the world renowned Robbie Wilson Collection and are guaranteed as such. His collection is regarded as the largest collection of military headgear ever and while this led to the foundation of the Wilson History and Research Centre in 2008, part of this collection was still kept personal. Following his death in 2012 this personal collection has been sold and this piece is from that portion of his incredible collection.
