Default Luftwaffe officer`s gloves - opinions please

Hello,

What do you think about these gloves?
Features: grey leather, ECHT NAPPA marked buttons.
Looks same or, very similar were used also as a flight gloves.
Could be these used in a manequin representing a LW officer in 1940-1941 ?

Hello!

About this kind of stuff it is always difficult distinguish the period objects from the postwar ones, but in this case I'm quite confortable on their post-'45 production.
in principle the design of some kind of gloves is basically the same till decades, and only some small details divide the goods from bads...

Hope this help!

IMO pre 45 production ... never easy with private made gloves but these ones looks good !
What tells you they would be postwar ?

Sorry, just kidding!

First, long time ago when I search old uniforms among the rag mill, seems to remember to had seen the same press buttons on a post war leather jacket... Obviously I could be wrong, but by my side they sent of postwar...

Hello,

Thank you for your thoughts, I appreciate them.
In this case to be 100% sure about the authenticity,I will use LW blue LICO Uniformhandschue.

Best Regards,
Drago

Echt Nappa is a quality of leather in German ...Nappa Leder !
So you have them pre 45 and post 45 , still today as Leather quality .
But these gloves do have a pre 45 typical quality ...

True. I don't know if the gloves are TR periode but Echt nappa is pre and post war for sure.

Ok, they could be pre-45, but I would like that someone tells me the reason why they come from TR eve...

Yep Nick, I know what means Nappa Leder, but is not enough to detetminate his "originality", and " do have a pre 45 typical quality" it's not enough too. At least could worth the same or my words.
