Fireman's Helmet - Royal Fire-brigade reproduction

Heroes of yesteryear

When one first eyes any of the Gifts Actually collection of classic 19th & 20th century fireman helmets, one would likely be distracted by its brilliant hand-craftsmanship, its’ intricate patterning on the side of the ornate dragon comb, or by its’ audacious brass shine or copper gleam. But after one moves past the beautiful look of this antique inspired, life-size vintage piece, one might start to wonder why a fireman would have worn something that is notoriously prone to adopting and retaining the temperature of its surrounds, i.e. gets really, really hot? Modern technology has pushed these wonderful helmets into obscurity, and they can now only act as reminders of the glorious past.

First introduced into the British Fire Service in the mid 1800’s these type of patterned helmets were used to fight fires right up until World War 2. Today they are still used for Ceremonial Parades and Royal Pageants and other official functions and events. Gift Actually's beautiful range of historical helmets are inspired by and modeled on the ‘Merryweather’ Fire Helmets with their all-brass/copper alloy construction and detailed high comb, to the complete chin straps. These pieces make great gifts for anyone with an interest in firefighting history, for colleagues with a growing collection of military memorabilia and those friends we all have who just love beautiful, shiny things!
