Made in Paris, France: the famous Denayrouze 3 bolt helmet by René Piel. Denayrouze was the inventor of the 3 bolt helmet system in the late 1860's, a system which has since been copied world wide and is still manufactured in Russia and China. This helmet once belonged to a diving company on the island of Corsica, bonnet, breastplate and face plate are all stamped with this company name. The helmet was then taken to the French main land where it got damaged in a house fire. Some parts were not found back and in order to restore the helmet these missing parts were made new. When polishing the entire helmet it will come out very nice, still I prefer to sell the helmet 'as is' because maybe the new owner prefers to let time give the new parts a dark patina rather then to polish the entire helmet.


Condition: see photo's. Price €3450,- plus shipping.
