helmets and shields

replica ancient Greek bronze helmets shields and armour online at itsallgreek.co.uk and at Museum Street shop near the British Museum

Our range of bronze replicas of ancient Greek helmets continues to be one of our most popular collections. The prototype is a plain, uncrested Corinthian helmet of the 6th century BC, examples of which are to be found in the British Museum, the Metropolitan Museum and the museum in Olympia. Crests would originally not have been in bronze, of course. Symbolic motifs such as the sphinx, the griffin and the serpent, have been added to create a powerful impact.

These helmets are produced for us in Greece by a well-known family of specialist bronzesmiths, with whom we have been working since 2000. Each piece is individually cast using the lost-wax technique. The method of oxidisation and patination results in a rich combination of texture and colour unique to each piece.
