Imperial Russian Napoleonic Military Mitre Helmet
A very interesting and unusual Imperial Russian Napoleonic military mitre helmet. Cannot say a lot about it is as I am not familiar with this type of item and haven't encountered one before. Comprises a red fabric shell mounted with a large stamped brass helmet plate that is of a type worn by Russian grenadiers during the late 18th and early 19th Century. The helmet plate is also held togeither by a series of brass straps. There is a fabric liner that has a faded stamp - can't make out the lettering but think that it is Russian Cyrillic. Unusual piece.
Condition of the Helmet
In good overall condition - probably missing section above shako plate - brass bands with bent wear.
Specifications of the Helmet
Height of the mitre is 12 inches and the diameter is 7.5 inches.
