Barbute italienne, celata alla Veneziana,... - Lot 46 - Pierre Bergé & Associés
Barbute italienne, celata alla Veneziana, vers 1470. An Italian barbute, celata alla Veneziana, circa 1470. Expertly restored, forged in one piece, rising to a medial ridge accentuated over the crown and pierced for a crest, the face-opening with forward-swept cheeks with rounded ends, the rear of the skull drawn out to a short flange over the nape, struck with a spurious mark in the Italian Gothic style, the edge turned outwards over wire, and studded with modern brass stellate rivets for both the lining-strap and the chin-strap. H.: 26.5 cm - L.: 26 cm - W.: 20.5 cm - Wt.: 1690 g. Provenance: William Randolph Hearst collection. Galerie Fischer, Luzern, June 23rd, 1971, lot 155a (CHF 15,000). The elegant design of this type of helmet is clearly derived from the classical Corinthian and Illyrian bronze helmets. Very similar examples are preserved in institutional collections, including The Royal Armouries Leeds (IV. 7), and the von Kienbusch collection in the Philadelphia Museum of Art (1963 catalogue No.43). See, DUFTY, Arthur Richard, European Armour in the Tower of London, 1968, pl. LXXIV bottom. And also see, The Kretzschmar von Kienbusch Collection of Arms and Armor, 1963, No. 43, pl. XXXIX, p.53.
