An important Renaissance helmet made a world-auction record price of £120,000 in Thomas Del Mar’s auction of Fine Antique Arms, Armour & Militaria in London.

Discovered in a house in Europe by Mr. Del Mar, this is one of the finest pieces to come onto the market for more than a decade. The previously unrecorded helmet was bought by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and will be re-united with the rest of the elaborate garniture, which is already in their collection, and includes a close helmet, gauntlet for the left hand, breast and backplate.
