chainmail aventail made of unriveted rings, burnished, Ø 8 mm

In the Middle Ages, chainmail aventail were attached to helmets, such as nose-type helmets, or above all to late medieval pelvic caps. They were worn as additional neck and shoulder protection.
The rim was made of thick cowhide, which was sewn to the chain mesh. The fastening holes for the helmet must be made by the customer himself.
