Sorry to advise that I see no relevant illustrations on either the preceding or following pages or in the index of illustrations for sales around that period.

I have the physical book as it came with my set of Laking years ago.

Ok Lee
Thank you very much for your help so I will try to find a copy from the original catalogue for this auction. "armes armures Frederik Muller & Cie Amsterdam 1911"
I know that The armour without burgonet was sold by Charassé, rue Bonaparte, Paris, circa 1889 The burgonet, Seymour Hayden, sold F. Muller & Co., Amsterdam, 26 April 1911, lot 219 and at last The armour with burgonet, Dr Bashford Dean, Riverdale, New York, sold American Art Association, New York, 23 November 1928, lot 148.
Of course if a member know where I could find a copy for those catalogues it would be great.
Best

Default very good news

Jean Luc, sorry for the wait ....... then here the good news.


the very important helmet of your suit because that is what it is, is attributed to a well-known noble officer.

GILBERT DE SAINT HILAIRE

This is done by the specialist Michele Muten of the Higgins Museum in 1995.

The rest of the harness is in a museum in Vienna
Heeresgeschichtliches Museum.

Can you post pictures of helmet, because it is a historical and important piece.

best from Holland,
jasper

That's excellent! I bet the museum in Vienna would love to know that the helmet has been located.

Congratulations Jean Luc with this amazing Burgonet helmet!

Not only is this helmet of very important historical value, the condition and even more
the etching and engraving are of superb fine and detailed quality
as indeed one would only find on armor of high ranked officers or people with status.
@ Jasper, bravo on noticing on locating this treasure and its true provenance so fast !

Respectful greetings
Ulfberth

Hi Jasper

Again very interesting link .This picture N°7 and the other of course.
I can see that the standard burgonet is with a similar shape but with a smaller comb ,also the cheek pieces are less elaborate so would be for lower rank officer .But no doubt that this helmet could be associated with my armour .
So the armour showed in the picture seven very similar to my armour , specially the breastplate and collar for the rest some differences in the construction more or less plates for the tassets and rerebraces.
It looks that my armour come from the same arsenal .

Best
Jean-Luc
