    Trench Art Mini Pickelhaube...

    Recommended Posts

    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


    hope you like

    Hi Gents

    Side by side I can see now why you were all so sure!

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

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