Close helmet in Maximilian style, c.1510-30 (steel with brass rivets) Distinguished by its regularly fluted surfaces, armor in this style was popularized in South Germany during the early 1500s. The style is usually called 'Maximilian', as it was introduced during the reign of Emperor Maximilian I (1493-1519). The style reflects male costume of the period and the shift to the new rounded forms of the Renaissance.
