If you keep up with the trends like we do you'll know that it's all about the regal British Equestrian look this season.
This gorgeous vintage riding helmet is a fun, funky accessory that's as collectible as it is kicky.
This beauty has the classic look of most traditional riding helmets. It features a hard protective shell which is covered with luxe black velvet.
Six seams around the crown culminate under a velvet covered dome on top of the helmet.
Inside, you will find that the helmet is lined with beautiful green and gold satin. A portion of the lining features elastic and a drawstring making it easily adjustable, as it is critical that equestrian helmets fit snuggly.
There is also a black elastic strap attached to each side of the helmet which provides extra security and staying power during wear.
A manufacturer's label can be found encased in clear plastic and stitched to the quilted green satin on the underside of the crown; it reads "The Triple Crown, Designed by Harry Hall, Made in England".
Finally, a little black grosgrain bow at the back of the helmet makes the ideal finish touch. Traditionally, black ribbons were worn for fox hunts, while red ribbons were used during stag or arme blanche hunting (hunting with swords).
The ends of the grosgrain are slightly frayed.
Unlike modern riding helmets, this piece embodies the traditional look of English riding headgear beautifully.
The interior lining shows some minor wear and a few light spots while the exterior velvet shows a bit of age and some very slight discoloration.
However, this beautiful, classic equestrian helmet remains in very good vintage condition.
These vintage riding helmets are NOT regulation by today's standards and should only be worn as an accessory or used as a display piece.
