Attributed to Lorenz Helmschmid | Sallet of Emperor Maximilian I (1459–1519) | German, Augsburg | The Met

Sallet of Emperor Maximilian I (1459–1519) Attributed to Lorenz Helmschmid (German, Augsburg, ca. 1445–1516), ca. 1490–95.   This sallet was a new type probably invented by Lorenz Helmschmid for Emperor Maximilian I (1459–1519) around the time he became head of the Holy Roman Empire in 1493. Its construction, with the falling buffe (chin defense) pivoting on the same points as the visor, anticipates the development of close helmets around 1510. Wt., 4 lb. 15.7 oz. (2261 g). Met Museum.
