Title Left-hand bridle gauntlet
Nationality German
Period c 1610
Sold

This would have been worn with a half armour: breast, back, pot and leg and shoulder elements. Typical of what the German reiter (light cavalry) used in the 30 Years War in the mid-17th century. It is Nuremberg town and maker marked. All the finger lames have been restored and possibly the thumb piece as well. Otherwise all original material.

Just wanted to thank you very much for finding the sword - you have made C's day and therefore mine!
