Date unknown as they are hand made using correct materials and techniques. Each with low flared, rolled and roped edge cuffs, six metacarpal plates and knuckle plate. The base plates of each finger remaining and the balance lacking. One thumb plate remaining. Finely decorated throughout with scrolling foliage. The interior with hammered finish and the plates with chisel cut edges. The decoration is 19th century and these were probably part of a full armor composed and decorated at that time for the Baronal decor market which evolved from the Edglington Tournament of 1839. Such armors were made from genuine elements as much as possible with replacements, usually the legs, produced to complete. In any event, a lovely pair of finely crafted and decorated antique gauntlets.
