Italian Model 1887 Pith Helmet

Item Description

Original 1960 Reproduction: Only One Available. The Kingdom of Italy used a variety of pith helmets during the early days of their colonial empire building. These included British-made examples, as well as those made domestically by hat makers. This example is of the 1887 pattern. This model remained in use until the introduction of the Model 1928 helmet.

At first we thought it was original but then discovered that the liner is not consistent with the liners of the period. Most likely manufactured in the 1960s for reenactment or theatrical purposes, this is still a very handsome helmet and will fill a hole in any Italian Military collection.
