Our Great Helmet of Rieter von Kornburg, Nuremberg, circa 1375 is a reproduction of a Late Medieval Great Helmet of Rieter von Kornburg, Nuremberg owned by the family Rieter von Kornburg and found in their tomb in the Allerheiligenkirche Kleinschwarzenlohe, Germany.
The family Rieter von Kornburg (=Knights of Kornburg) were medieval patricians, evidently living in Nuremberg since 1361. The helmet is dated around 1375 and was thought to have been made in the armourer's yard in Nuremberg. Today it is exhibited in the Germanische Nationalmuseum (GNM) in Nuremberg.
Our reconstruction is hand made of 1.6 mm steel. All steel parts have been riveted with brass rivets as well as the brass fittings on the front. These just were painted on the original piece.
The helmet features a chainmail aventail made from butted springsteel rings along with a very comfortable adjustable padded liner and a riveted leather chin strap with brass buckle.
