This is a stunning miniature Spartan helmet of heroic Greek King Leonidas (540 BC – 480 BC). Highly experienced military commander famously lead the Spartan forces during the Second Persian War. He is remembered for his heroic death at the Battle of Thermopylae as depicted in the feature film “300”.
Like the helmets and men under them that Vintage World Australia has represented with our helmet collection, sometimes their size and grandeur can be a little intimidating (which means they’re doing their job really). So, if it’s the majesty of full-size that you think he’d like on his shelf to admire in perpetuity but there isn’t the room on this collector’s shelf of memorabilia to fit a full-size piece then just opt for the miniature version.
Like their counterparts, these miniature helmets of history’s warriors are crafted using traditional techniques and tools from strong and endurable metal alloys and finished to the same specifications as the original helmets – only on a smaller scale. As a gift, these miniature helmets are even more versatile than their full-sized brethren, yet they are no less attention-grabbing and sure to spark a conversation at your next dinner party or boardroom meeting. “Game of Thrones”

DISCLAIMER: All products on our website are reproductions, inspired by vintage and antique designs and made to closely match the originals. Each item is handmade by master artisans using often centuries old techniques and traditions. As they are handcrafted, no two items will be identical. Some natural variations and imperfections are inherent in the materials and construction processes used, making each item truly unique. In regards to our armour sets and warrior helmets, each item is made by hand using the same techniques that were used hundreds of years ago to make the original pieces. As such, these pieces naturally come in slightly different colours and sizes, and with some natural, unavoidable scratches and embellishments. These differences make these reproductions even more authentic, as no two sets of original armour were ever the same.
