We are offering a pair of early 20th century Yakima Indian beaded gauntlets, glass beads hand sewn on native tanned hide, lined with trade cloth. Well executed with a colorful floral and leaf design. Each measures 14 1/2" long x 8 3/4" across at the mouth and 5" across at the wrist; would fit most men and women. In excellent condition. Leather is soft and supple, light wear commensurate with age, has a nice old patina. One tiny tear to the back of the trim on the right one. No visible bead loss with the exception of possibly one white bead on the right gauntlet.
