I have not seen any documented to our period, nor can I recall seeing them in photos or paintings. Their purpose is to get excess sleeve material (both length and volume) out of the way, but if performing manual labor, simply rolling one's sleeves up is a period practice. If wearing a coat, not so much of a worry, anyway.
