PickelHaube 1889 Preusen Kurassier Helmet. (Prussian Cuirassier Helmet) The Pickelhaube (German for Pickel or Point and Haube or bonnet which was a general word for headwear) was a Prussian spiked helmet worn by the German military, firefighters and police during the 19th century.
Our all-metal 18 gauge steel version of this Pickelhaube was worn mainly by cuirassiers and was sometimes referred to as lobstertail helmets by allied forces due to their distinctive curved neck guard.
The two round colored cockades behind the chinstraps attached to the sides of the helmet.
The right cockade, the national cockade, is red, black and white.
The left cockade used to denote the province of the soldier is black and white for Prussia.
The brass plate design consists of a large, spread-winged eagle, the emblem used by Prussia.
Also includes brass and steel spike finial and brass scaled chinstrap with buckle.
Wearable, functional German helmet.
