Title Helmet plate
Nationality Italian
Period c 1914-18
Price £30.00

This is perhaps a commemorative device, possibly indicating an award of some sort, which could have been placed on the Adrian helmet that the Italians wore in WW1. It was a direct copy of the French helmet. I think it is Italian because of the crown and the general design has a marked Italian feel.

It measures approximately 4 x 8 cms and has a gentle curve, clearly designed, in my opinion, to fit the front of a steel helmet.

There are two brass prongs on the reverse, one of which is slightly damaged.

By the way, as ever, please correct me if I am wrong about this badge.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Just to let you know the two propelling pencils, in the form of pistols, have just arrived in the condition you sent them. Thank you very much indeed for your excellent and prompt service, and I will keep a look out on your site for any other pencils you may have for sale in the future.
