Slavic helmet from Olszowka – Greater Poland
Slavic helmet from the village of Olszówka in Greater Poland.
Slavic helmet is made of 2 mm thick, slightly porous sheet metal, which adds an antique look to the steel obtained from furnaces in the early Middle Ages.
A loose find from 1919, now in the museum. Originally, the helmet was covered with gilded copper sheet. My reconstruction is made entirely of high-quality steel, and only the decorations are made of brass, which meets the needs of reenactors. As many as 4 helmets were found in Poland, which proves the POLISH ORIGIN OF THESE HELMETS.
Each helmet we offer is carefully crafted from slightly porous sheet metal, giving it an authentic, aged look. Inspired by the discovery of a Great Poland SLAVIC helmet found in Olszowka. Our replicas are not only a faithful reproduction of a historical pattern, but also a perfect combination of tradition and modern craftsmanship precision.
We pay attention to the smallest details, trying to recreate not only the appearance, but also the functionality and comfort of use of the helmets.
Safety and durability are our priority. That’s why we only use high-quality materials to ensure not only the authenticity but also the sturdiness of each helmet. Regardless of whether you are a historical reenactor, a LARP enthusiast or a collector of unique artifacts, our helmet replicas will certainly meet your expectations.
Discover our collection today and travel to the magical world of the early Middle Ages, where warriors fought for honor and OUR SLAVIC HELMET was an integral part of their armor. With our Tjele Helmet replicas you will feel like a real hero of those times!
Optionally, I can attach to the helmet: chin straps, leather lining and a chain mail aventail made of flat rings with an internal diameter of 9 mm, riveted with a round rivet, alternating with die-cut rings. The choice is yours.
MADE TO ORDER HELMET.
IF YOU HAVE ARMING CAP:
Measure the head circumference wearing the arming cap, according to the instructions in the photo. Take the measurement loosely. Remember that when choosing a helmet size, e.g. 66 cm, I send a helmet with an internal circumference of 66 cm, I do not add any spare space. You decide on the size. Also include information about the circumference of your bare head in the notes. If you also choose leather lining, add +2cm. EXAMPLE: bare head circumference 59cm, head circumference with arming cap 64cm, + 2cm leather lining, total 66cm. In this case, choose size 66cm.
