Salade or Sallet Helmet

Description:

The Sallet or Salade was a combat helmet that was eventually replaced with the Bascinet during the mid 15th Century. To increase protection to the face and neck, the sides of the helmet were drawn forward at the bottom to cover the cheeks and ears, and the rear of the helmet was curved out to protect the neck.
