Lobster-Tailed Pot Helmet

The lobster-tailed pot helmet, named after the animal because of the similarity of its neck guard to the tails, also named zischägge, horseman's pot and harquebusier's pot, was a helmet used by horsemen in the 17th century.

It consisted of a semi-spherical headpiece, often punched cheekpieces, a forwarding projecting peak, the characteristic neckguard and a nasal bar. It was first used by Hungarian hussars and polish horsemen, and from the 17th century quickly adapted by the middle-European harquebusiers and dragoons.

This replica of the lobster-tail helmet is a variant named three-bar pot, featuring three welded bars as a facial protection. The lobster tail itself consists of three riveted plates. The inside of the helmet features a practical size adjustable leather inlet.
