They feature a hand-beaded design with deer or elk and naturalistic leaf or plant-like elements. The bead colors are sky or turquoise blue, apple green, dark forest green, yellow, clear, black, and dark brick red. The gloves have a long graduated fringe with longer strips toward the top of the glove. The interior of the cuff is lined in black patterned cotton fabric.The bead work is interesting and there are subtle highlights such as the dark accents on the legs and hoofs that add a lot of visual interest. The overall condition is good vintage. They show age appropriate wear and tear. There is some deterioration of the leather palm under the thumb of the right hand glove.
Both gloves have a nail hole through the top edge at the back of the cuff as these were hung as wall ornaments. I dont see any missing or loose beads and the colors are great. The photos are the best indicator of condition, please use the zoom feature and check them out.
They are about 15 long and 8 across at the widest point of the cuff (not including the fringe). Our auctions are "as-is", we make every attempt to adequately describe all features and flaws.
