A Hussar bascinet was a type of helmet commonly used by the troops of the Polish Hussars, similar to the pappenheimers used in Western Europe. There were a few variants of this helmet: with a tip on the top, a high crest, or fan-like wings on the skull.more
The main part of the helmet (the skull) with a hemispherical shape is topped with a rosette and a knob. To the sides of the bell, there are attached wings with radial ribs and heart-shaped cut-outs. The peak of a triangular shape has a notch for a nasal bar of a leaf-shaped ending, protecting part of the face, and retained by a wing screw. The helmet has a neck guard and cheekpieces with heart-shaped ear openings.
A Hussar bascinet was a type of helmet commonly used by the troops of the Polish Hussars, similar to the pappenheimers used in Western Europe. Usually, it was decorated similarly to the Hussar armour - with trimmings and appliqué motifs of brass stamped with geometrical ornaments. There were a few variants of this helmet: with a tip on the top, a high crest, or fan-like wings on the skull (the latter was popular in the1st half of the 18th century, during the Saxon's reign).
