While manufacturing of these mitten-gauntlets V. Behaim's drawing of the Caspar von Frundsberg's landsknecht armour (Germany, c. 1527) was used as a base. Original gauntlets have mail defence of the fingers which was replaced with the defence used in the classic mitten-gauntlets of that time.

Metal surface was aged in the Renaissance style to give the gauntlets the view of the original armours of XVI c.

Nifty and a nice photo too.

I second the request for a photo of the full harness if you have one.

The complete original harness, if you have a picture Happy
I guess it's a typical Landsknecht-harness with a big gorget and long tassets. Or a maximilian-style full harness?
