Granate Protektor Gauntlets by Wilson

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281022823601

These vintage gauntlets were made are “Granate”  Protektor sold by Wilson Brothers.  They are mitten style, with Wilson branded snaps.  They are in incredible condition, still soft and supple.  Perfect for motoring or motorcycle riding.  I’ve attached an ad from 1910 for similar models from the same company.  Size 9.

WWII sheepskin gauntlets

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271098561346

These vintage mittens were made during WWII and are named to a Captain Bill Grall.  They are fully sheepskin, with a tanned finish on the hand and a raw finish on the gauntlet.  They have what looks to be a horsehide reinforcement pull panel on the gauntlet, as well as a horsehide gusset. The leather is still supple and the sheepskin is in great shape.  Though they appear to be a handmade, non issue item, they would match a wartime sheepskin B-3 or Irvin, or are perfect to go with a vintage motorcycle jacket.
