It's some kind of armour, I think.

Hi,

I love doing searches for these things!
Here is what I found.

There is one for sale at:

I found a web site that calls it 'burgonet'. I think this is the one you are looking for.
The page says (http://members.xoom.com/darkcarnival/add/netbooks/4/NetBook_...
Another design of helmet in this period was the burgonet, with an open face and a central comb. The face would be guarded by bars, but most of the face would be visible, as opposed to earlier designs in which there were only eye-slits. Developed from this design was the morion, the distinctive helmet of the Spanish Conquistador. Italian morions usually featured a comb, Spanish designs were plainer and had a simple domed top. This design would be continued until the 17th Century, with simple helmets covering only the top of the head and the back of the neck, sometimes incorporating cheek-guards.

Hope this helps,
Marijke
