This is a fantastic replica of a Pair of Gauntlets. A gauntlet is known as a glove covered in steel that was worn in suits of armour to protect, it also means punishment or as a challenge when "throwing down the gauntlet". Gauntlet comes from the Old French word for glove which was used as a symbol of a challenge. In terms of a punishment, "running the gauntlet" is an old military form of punishment in which the victim runs between two rows of men wearing armoured glove who beat him as he passes through the lines. However, today, if someone makes you run the gauntlet, they won't really strike you - phew!
