Rare Maximillian Mitten Gauntlets, c.1500 - SOLD

Price:   $ 0.00
Reviews
This immaculate pair of Maximillian Gauntlets from a private collection is offered with unimpeachable authenticity, and reflects the extraordinary care and unspoiled condition enjoyed since they were produced by German master craftsmen over 500 years ago. Made of bright steel, the outer surfaces are polished over a light patina, and the sophisticated design and articulation highlighted by the radiating flutes, embossed rope upper borders and knuckle plates, all secured and moving under dome-headed brass rivets. A complete suit of Maximillian armour in museum quality condition will cost $250K or greater in today’s market. The Helmet (Great helm) and Mitten Gauntlets are the most desirable and most difficult elements to obtain. 16 years ago, in 2001, a single Maximillian mitten was sold at Auction in London for approx. $10,000.00. Today, this rare matched set is priced to sell, at $12,500.00 USD.
