Nez Perce Gauntlets with Roses


Notify me when back in stock




Nez Perce gauntlets with fully beaded white panels having a center rose, smoke tanned elk hide. Trunk piece, never worn. The United States Cavalry riders wore gauntlet gloves as part of their uniform, introducing the clothing style to plains tribes who turned the gloves into spectacular works of art with painstaking beadwork. As skilled horsemen, Sioux and other plains tribes took great pride in their horses and often wore symbols that celebrated their warrior and rider status, such as these gauntlets. Western cowboys and rodeo performers adopted the beaded gauntlets made by Native People into their fancy wear.
