Notes

Noted as 'pair of gauntlets removed Oct 1975 Italian late 16th. cent'; actually only the right one was, the left being a 17th century long elbow gauntlet. The black paint with bright borders, as the armour was finished until 1975 when it was cleaned for loan to the National Army Museum, remains on this gauntlet.
