I really like these and wanted to know if any one knows where they are at now or if there are more pictures of them. They are supposed to be from Rhodes.

Lot Description A PAIR OF RARE ITALIAN (PROBABLY MILANESE) GOTHIC MITTEN GAUNTLETS
Late 15th Century
Assymetrical, with flaring cuffs bordered by narrow terms, that for the left hand extending over the metacarpus and round the base of the thumb, that for the right fitted into a separate plate that encircles the wrist and performs a similar function, the fingers are protected by broad articulated plates (replacements), a single one on the left and two on the right, and the thumbs each by two plates (replacements) riveted to leathers, the main edges are bordered by lining-rivet holes, and struck on each cuff are two split-cross marks, now illegible (2)
