Note: No shipping available outside of USA and Canada
Smoked Hide (Moose or Deer) Gauntlets, hand sewn and fringed
Originating ca. 1957 from the Tahltan First Nation in
Absolutely stunning and authentic pieces of First Nations hand crafted and wearable artwork. The hand sewn flowers are gorgeous and made with lots of love for details. For protection, these Gauntlets have been "shadow framed" and are mounted behind the glass frame.
I have never seen them outside the frame and can not comment on the inside condition of the gauntlets, sold as is and as seen in the images.
