A good “Spanish” Morion
A good “Spanish” Morion, North Italian c 1580. Formed in one piece with an almond shaped crown and prominent “pear stalk” finial. The upturned brim has a turned and roped edge. Retaining its original brass rivets, the plume socket is now missing. Excellent age patina overall, an untouched helmet of good form.
