Definition of basinet in English:
A medieval helmet of light steel, fitting close to the wearer’s head and typically having a visor.
- The great helm persisted but was giving way to the head-hugging bascinet, which sometimes had a visor.
- He wore a helmet of the kind that is called a basinet, with eye slits, and chain armour.
- As an additional head protection, but occasionally worn alone beneath the mail coif, a metal skullcap called a basinet was developed.
Middle English: from Old French bacinet 'little basin'.
