A medium sized, reproduction leather fire helmet as worn by the firemen at the Great Fire of London. Approx 39cm wide.(Child sized)
Fire Helmets helped protect the wearer’s neck, as it had a large flap at the back. It would have been made from leather with a padded inside. Leather is fire and heat resistant making it a perfect material for Firemans helmets at the time.
