    Fireman's Steel Helmet featuring a front plate with the insignia and motto of the Soviet Fire Department, circa 1920s-30s.

    Fireman's Steel Helmet featuring a front plate with the insignia and motto of the Soviet Fire Department, circa 1920s-30s.

    Steel helmet about a size 56/57. Black enamel over the dome and visors, steel crest on the top and flaming grenades on the sides. An obvious carry over from the Imperial era, but what would have been fire-gilt brass fittings before the Revolution are here made from stamped steel probably once painted with a "gold" paint that has turned a dark "bronze" with age. The original leather chin straps are still present although a little stiff. The helmet plate shows the fire department motto written in a highly stylized script: "Always ready!"

    Overall very good condition showing both age and an acceptable amount of wear. Certainly displays a much more solid construction than the rather insubstantial OD painted steel shells that were basic issue to firemen in later years.
