Fig. 605 is an English helmet, half-way between a close helmet and a "burgonet."
About the end of the 16th century the usual English helmets were the burgonet and morion.
The burgonet displays three masks—on the visor (which is in two pieces), and at the base of the skull.
This manifest improvement was considered by Meyrick to constitute the burgonet.
It should perhaps be described as a burgonet with gorget and movable mentonires.
The wearing of the bascinet, salade, burgonet, and like helmets needs no detailed description.
The helmet at the latter end of the seventeenth century is generally open and of the burgonet type.
To those students who consult Meyrick it is advisable to give a word of warning as to this authors theory of the burgonet.
The burgonet is an open helmet, and, as the name implies, of Burgundian origin.
The burgonet is of elegant outline, and bears a close enough resemblance to a Botian casque.
