Vambraces of Gondor

Leather diamond shaped vambrace is edged with fold over leather trim  This is stitched down around the edge just like Strider's outfit.  The tree of Gondor is tolled and silver pained in the lower part.    The rest is tooled in feather pattern. Tooled pattern is best scene in the Visual companion (pg 26 - Aragorn after FOTR final battle)  At top and bottom are black leather pieces that curve partially around, somewhat like a flattened sideways "H".  They are tooled and then worked in silver.  The third layer is straps of leather bolted to the black leather "H".  These straps are on both the upper and lower arm.  The buckets are silver.  Unknown if they are flared like Boromir's other buckles.

There is a softer quitted leather vambrace that is underneath.  This is tan colored.
