Gothic Suit Of Armor - Full Suit Of Armor Wearable Costume
Gothic Suit Of Armor -Full Suit OF Armor wearable costume An open helmet, such as the sallet (from the Italian celata, "head covering"), which does not encase the head or fasten to the armor, is cooler and allows the wearer to turn his head easily. However, the weight-here 6 lb. 3 oz.-is not distributed onto the shoulders but is borne entirely by the head and neck.This style of sallet, fitted closer to the head than the German form seen nearby, was developed in Venice, but this example was produced in Milan, a center for the highest quality armor.
