Greek Illyrian Bronze Helmet from an English private collection. Azure blue - green patination in most places. The Helmet has been manufactured with exquisite detail. The Helmet has long protective cheek pieces and a short curved flange at the back, the high dome decorated with two pairs of prominent ridges over the crown. There is also circle decoration around the facial opening and holes at the front and back for attachment of a feather plume in antiquity. At the bottom front of each cheek protector there are perforations for attachment of body protection. condition: Very good for a genuine ancient helmet - some restoration to the dome and flange. Period: 500 BC - 450 BC. Height: 9 inches. Length: 8 3/4 inches.
Width: 6 3/4 inches. A comparable Helmet with a similar quality patina sold in Christie's London with a reserve of $36,000.

Price: $7,760.00
