This style of helm and visor was common in the second half of the 14th Century and has probably seen service throughout Europe. This type of visor is often called a “round-nose” and the term “klappvisor” actually refers to the single center hinge attachment. Visors with a center hinge mount were more commonly seen in and around what is now Germany. This Bascinet and Visor is based on a piece that can be found in the collection of Castle Valeria located in Sion, Switzerland. The effigy of Hartmann of Kroneburg (d.1372) also depicts a Bascinet with a similar center-hinge Klappvisor.
