Categories: ,


You are bidding on a FANTASTIC and VERY RARE example of a 100% ORIGINAL 15th-17th Century Fully Articulated Amor Gauntlet!


A gauntlet is a variety of glove, particularly one having been constructed of hardened leather or metal plates which protected the hand and wrist of a combatant in Europe between the early fourteenth century and the Early Modern period. Today it can also refer to an extended cuff covering the forearm as part of a woman’s garment.


Made of steel and leather, this Armor Gauntlet is in EXCELLENT used condition!  Approx. 300-500 years old, it was originally part of a complete suit of armor.  SMALL in size, it was most likely made for someone very small, or very young.  As the original leather rotten away over time, the previous collector/museum replaced it with new leather (which is quite common)  Some obvious marks and wear…as well as some rust internallly….but VERY solid otherwise!  A VERY RARE item for any collection, display, or restoration project!

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.


——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
