Great War Period Officers Leather Gaiters

Great War Period Officers Leather Gaiters

Code: 10080

SOLD

Fine pair of private purchase equestrian style leather gaiters. The same style of which were worn by British and Commonwealth officers during the Great War and into the Inter-War period.

This pair feature dark brown leather, securing via a full length lace and brass loop arrangement. One lace appears to have snapped, but could easily be replaced.

They are in well used condition, with some wear and stitch loss to the top trim as pictured.

When measured around the outside at the widest part they measure approximately 15 inches, therefore around a 14.5 inch calf I would imagine. This is however an estimate only, they are sold as collectables.

They are ideal for finishing off a mannequin with period gaiters.
