The mittens are of black-smoked deer hide, with a set-in thumb and evidence of band of fur or trim at the cuffs, now entirely missing. The front face of each has a decoration of curvilinear design embroidered in orange, blue and cream. They have an attached label which reads 'Pair of Gloves. E.105: of black buckskin ornamented with dyed moose hair. Probably Cree and pre 1850, Canada.' R. L. Stolper has assessed the date of these as late 18th century.
