Apparently the source URL of my last post, 14th century Burgundian helmet with mask visor, the horrible mess that it is, won’t take you to the item.
I now replaced it with what the museum calls its permalink, but I’m still wary about URIs that look like that.
I’m not sure if that will fix all the consequent reblogged posts, but for the inconvenience of propagating broken data, I thought to translate some interesting details from the item description.
Instead I discovered that there are more images of the helmet. Larger images.
I’ll just leave them here.
These next three have also their originals which come in delicious resolution.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any information on that sword. I’ll post if I’ll find.
Well, about those details. The helmet belonged to the set of Gustav Vasa’s plate armor suit. It was smithed ca. 1540 either in Augsburg or Nürnberg. The visor is from the same era as the helmet, but they did not belong together originally.
That’s unfortunately it. The rest of the description appears just to summarize its visual properties.
gearboxx is right. I would definitely not want to confront that on a battlefield. I didn’t even first notice it had teeth.

Aw man, thanks. I know I’ve been neglecting this, and I feel bad about it.
It feels like I’ve moved on from just absorbing content. Now I want to create it.
Tumblr used to help kill time when I was more depressed, but now I get anxious that I’m wasting time trying to find good content that fits the theme of dreams.
I’ll try to post more regularly from now on, now I’m again more confident that my posts matter :)
I feel like planning a massive road trip where I would strategically plan a route around whoever would like to spend a bit of time with me.
I’m on the wrong continent :(
