Lobster-tailed pot helmet from the 17th century.
This Lobster-tailed pot helmet was an inserted riding helmet in Europe in the 17th century. It was initially used by Hungarian hussars and Polish riders, but from the 17th century onwards it was also used in Central Europe by arquebus riders and dragooners.
This replica of the Lobster-tailed pot helmet is a variant called three-bar pot, which has a face shield made of 3 bars welded together at their ends.
The lobster tail consists of 3 riveted plates.
For the attachment on the head the Pappenheimer helmet has a very practical leather inlay, which is adjustable in size and can therefore be adapted individually on each head.
