German Hagenuk Deep Sea Diving Helmet, circa 1920s

About

Antique German navy hagenuk deep sea diving helmet, circa 1920s. A classic copper and brass helmet made by a scarce maker in the German and French style. Hagenuk (acronym for Hanseatische Apparatebouw Gesellschaft Neufeldt und Kuhnke - the Neufeldt and Kuhnke Machine Building Company) was based in Kiel, Germany, and mostly made equipment for the Imperial Navy. They became famous in the early 1920s for making one of the first armoured diving suits. This survivor was actually found by the former owner's grandfather in the Amazon. It shows its age and usage with many dents and broken and missing glass in the porthole panels. Measures: 14 in high x 13 in diameter.
