German gauntlets 1480
One of my best piece I have created. They were made for a customer in Czech Republic but in the end they found a second owner in USA.
Thez are made from mild steel 1,3 - 1,5mm. It has typical elements used in Germany 15th century.
Sliding rivets ensure that the gauntlet provides enough movement for the user.
The inner sides of the metal are wirebrushed to show the hammer work. Bronze buckles are used for strapping.
