Presented is a recreation of a very rare Ca 1896
C.E. Heinke three light, twelve bolt, Pear Diver helmet. Heinke started business in England in 1820 and was a major factor
in the diving industry until 1957 when it was acquired by Siebe Gorman. Contemporary Heinke helmets sell for $7500 to $8500
with older versions selling for considerably more. This helmet is made from copper and brass. Its front port opens and all
moveable parts operate. The bonnet is mounted on the breast plate using interrupted threads and turns freely. There is a lever
and adjustable nut on the back to lock the bonnet in position and keep the helmet from turning. The brales and tag have the
proper markings, and there are air vents inside. For a helmet of this type it weighs a heavy 25 pounds. It is being sold for
display only.
