(Roth, c.1960s) Popularized by legendary visual artist and car customizer Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, this is a rare vintage surf helmet fashion accessory. Based on the "sauerkraut" style German army helmet, this example is constructed of chromed vacuum formed plastic. Helmets like these were offered for mail order in Ed Roth catalogs and comic books. The interior of this helmet is unfinished as it is a prototype from Roth's personal collection. Measuring 6"x9.25"x10.75", the piece is in good condition. It shows moderate rubbing and pitting to the reflective coating at spots on either side of the crown and along the bottom edge.
