Hi Gents

The pip may hold a clue but I can't date it . I think it belongs here in the imperial forum. Great little (Cavalry?) lobster tail style helmet, great effort by someone.

Found luckily, in the bottom of a box of junk from a house clearance.

'plate' - pip 

chinstrap - bracelet

No, not copying a pickelhaube, but much more likley to be a copy of a GB Life Guards helmet.

Hi Trajan

Thanks.an excellent point. I should have spotted that. The German looking pip led me...

A lovely piece of trench art and, as Trajan suggests, modelled on a British heavy cavalry helmet.  Thank you for sharing it!
