German Gothic mitten gauntlets

Absolutely beautiful German Gothic mitten gauntlets. Includes an integral thin leather mitten, strapped in and sewn to the steel gauntlet at the fingertips and thumb. Two articulating plates at metacarpals, knuckle risers, and four finger plates. Hinged thumb assembly of four plates. Highly polished 18 gauge mild steel construction, but they're significantly tougher than an 18 gauge helmet, thanks to the fluting and edging and overlapping plates. (That's the whole point of the German Gothic style - extra strength through fluting!)

cuff: 6 1/8"
knuckles to fingertips: 4"
thumb assembly: 6"
inner leather mitten: 9"
weight: 1 lb 14.6 oz (each)

Therion mini-review: these gauntlets were copied from museum originals and are fantastic for dress wear, theatrical and film costuming, equestrian pursuits, and longsword/greatsword reenactment combat. The finger articulation is a bit stiff right out of the box, but it will loosen up with use. You'll most likely also want to adjust the straps and gloves a bit for optimum hold, but overall the metal workmanship is quite fine and these are one heck of a bargain.

If you're looking for attractive and sturdy gothic gauntlets, I give these two thumbs up (thumbs up, but not stuck out where they can be hit, preferably).
