on occasion a piece is acquired by Propmasters that exhausts our own research sources. This is such a piece.
An imposing looking large Medieval full head Helmet. Constructed fully of metal with a hinged and lockable horizontally opening faceplate grill. Made to a high standard, which together with the fact it is all metal, heavily lends itself to being a foreground/hero piece.
It looks to have once originally been painted all black, remnants of black paint are still clearly evident. It definitely has age to it, at least pre-1985. Would be from a film rather than a television production too.
It was sourced from an armourer who supplied the film industry for over four decades but has no memory of it's exact use.
There is a $100 Propmasters gift voucher up for grabs to the first person to submit information leading to it's positive production identification.
Good luck and may the search begin .......
