Wonderful antique hand-beaded deerskin gauntlet gloves! They do have wear from age & use: Some fringe is shortened or missing; there is an approx. 1 1/8 hole on the side of one. Some beading is missing on the star motif, and on the peace pipe on that same glove (plus a couple of red beads are loose but still present).
The hand with missing beads has bug holes and what looks like a burn mark on the palm side. Plus scuffs, dirt and other wear. So they are certainly not perfect, but they have a nice look and a good patina, and the beaded Indians are quite charming the pair display very nicely & are very appealing.
