Antique 18th century Indo Persian-Mughal, Kulah-Khud helmet with a hemi-spherical skull with a stout mounted long spike at the top, a pair of plume-holders, sliding nasal, retaining its original neck-defence camail of chain mail of rounded riveted links. The skull is chiseled over its entire surface with floral and creeper designs in medium relief damascened in silver koftgari. This helmet is much heavier than most of the Indo Persian Kulah-Khud helmets; the skull of the helmet is hammered from a single piece of thick solid steel with visible hammer marks in the interior but with a perfectly smooth surface.
MEASUREMENTS: Height from the top of the spike to the bottom of the mail: 51 cm (20 inches), Diameter: 20.3 cm (8 in).
REFERENCES: An almost identical helmet is in the collection of the National Museum of New Delhi dated to 1750, published in the"Indian Armours in the National Museum Collection Catalogue" by G.N.Pant and K.K.Sharma. Page 43 Figure 12, and also in the Indian book" Arms and Armour Volume III" by Dr. G.N. Pant plate CIX - CX. Dr. G.N. Pant - On page 1213 Plate XVIII.
