Beautiful Quality

The bascinet, both with and without a visor (visors were often removable for better visibility and ventilation), was the most common helmet worn in Europe during the latter portions of the 14th and early 15th centuries, including during the Hundred Years' War. Contemporary illustrations show nearly every knight and man-at-arms wearing one of a few variants of the basic hound skull helmet. The basic design was intended to direct blows from weapons downward and away from the skull and face of the wearer.

In the other hand, the helmet was still widely used without the visor for the 16th century in Hungary, proof of that is the sculpture of the sarcofag from the tomb of the Hungarian nobleman Lorinc Újlaki (1459–1524). His statue was sculpted wearing a bascinet without visor
