    Description

    William F. "Doc" Carver: A Colorful Pair of Beaded Buckskin Gauntlets Worn By Him in His Performing Days. These delightful pieces typify the gaudy costumes worn by these early Wild West show performers. Clearly they were much used, with light overall soiling and heavy wear on the red cloth trim along the cuff of both. The provenance is the same as the other Carver pieces in this section: they descended from Nordin and were purchased in 1986 by Greg Martin. On the underside of each glove along the cuff is an unexplained old ink notation, "69 RM," probably Nordin's. Length of each glove 16".
