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 Telegraph Creek, British Columbia, Canada

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.

The Tahltan Nation is a tribal organization combining the governments of two band governments of the Tahltan people in the Stikine Country of the Northern Interior of British Columbia, Canada. The two member governments are the Iskut Firs tNation and the Tahltan First Nation which is also known as the Tahltan Indian Band. The Tahltan Nation is governed by 10 families from each band and has its offices at Dease Lake

Measurements: the frame is 26" x 20". The gauntlets itself are 13" long with an approx. 4" wide wrist.
