Pair of Antique European Carbon Steel Gauntlets
Item Details
Description
Western Europe, probably England or France, ca. late 19th to early 20th century CE. A delightful matched pair of steel armor glove gauntlets with carbon steel rivets. The gauntlets cover part of the forearm with a flared cylindrical shape, and the wrist area of each are composed of four articulated plates with rivets holding them together. Carbon steel rivets are fastened to each of the finger plates as well. The frontside of the gauntlets are decorated with uniform textured surface that resembles that of leather. These are a charming antique, possibly Victorian, revivalist creation of traditional plated gauntlets and were likely part of a full suit made to emulate a Medieval Knight. The Victorians were fascinated by medieval life and made suits of armor to decorate their homes and capture the romanticism of a bygone age of chivalry. Size: 13" L x 5" W x 10" H (33 cm x 12.7 cm x 25.4 cm)

Provenance: private J.H. collection, Beaverton, Oregon, USA
