The locking gauntlet from a suit of armor belonging to the Vicomte de Turenne, and made around 1527 in England, where the Vicomte served as French Ambassador to the English crown. The suit would have been worn for tournaments, and the locking gauntlet served to secure the sword to the hand of the wielder, preventing him from being disarmed.
