    SPANISH CONQUISTADOR PERIOD GAUNTLET ca. 1700's. - Wonderful figured and constructed gauntlet for the left hand. Richly engraved and appointed with brass studs. The articulated hand guard is formed with six joints and is fully functional. Amazingly the originally three piece thumb guard is intact. Since the thumb guard was attached to the gauntlet body by a leather thong they readily became detached and lost. Engraving motif is typical of the period inclusive of the classic "man in the moon" profile.

    Condition: Exceptionally well cared for specimen. Relatively free of dents and pitting. Minor metal staining overall. Very handsome and artistically pleasing to the eye.
