Gauntlets & Components

Early Full Plate Gauntlets

c. 1340


Copied from an effigy of a member of the Leverick family in Ash Church, Kent, these are probably the earliest known examples of full plate gauntlets. They are very comfortable to wear, offer great protection for the hand and wrist, and are an interesting alternative to hourglass gauntlets.
