Hi Cerjak,
Momonari kabuto emerged in the late Sengoku period and became widespread during the subsequent decades. The form was kept until the Meiji times. It is said, that the shape derived from an European helmet, the Cabasset or "Birnhelm". But there is no proof so far. Your set might be composit, based on the different lacing. Who knows....
