“To the victor belong the spoils.” The history of mankind’s evolution from simple but smart, canoe crafting sailor to modern, rocket designing astronaut is littered and fraught with a history of violence, war and survival. It was those who battled hardest and longest and with proven endurance and relative longevity that made it through to fight another day. Survival generally doesn’t happen without one’s head and this is why helmets and other protective headwear has been popular since we first learned to manipulate steel and iron.
From heroic Spartan, Leonidas to vengeful gladiator, Maximus, from Caesar’s Imperial Roman Guards to Arthur’s Knights of Camelot, Vintage World Australia has a range of war helmets that spans 2500 years, beginning in Ancient Greece and coming right up to the Germany that took the whole world to war twice in the 20th century. The collection is unsurpassed in Australian retail and wholesale industries for both quality and variety. Finely hand-crafted, even the minutest of details has not been overlooked when recreating these hugely popular, attention-grabbing, quality pieces.
Every man has a little prehistoric machismo that evolution hasn’t been able to knock entirely out of the gene pool yet, and this is why one can be 100% that a Vintage World Australia’s, antique-style, ‘Medieval’ Helmet will always be a welcome and unique gift for any and every man alive today. “Game of Thrones”
