Gothic armour was fully jointed plate armour evolved in the first half of the 15 th century, essentially in Germany. It featured vertical lines, arches and spiky silhouettes which had much in common with Gothic architecture. Curves, fluting and ridges were modeled in order to strengthen armor and deflect arrows and other weaponry of the time as well as to decorate armour. Gothic armour excellently conformed to the human body to protect it with minimal limitation of movement and weight.
Arm protection was essential since arms were holding weapons. Gauntlets of various designs were produced, often highly decorated. Good gauntlets were a kind of fashion for the knights of the time.
These are the gothic fingered gauntlets based on the ones stored in the Churbourg Castle Armoury. Combined lamellar-jointed fingers. Plain cuff. Mid 15c.
