A LADY’S GLOVE

A GLOVE of early Queen Anne period made of what has been white kid leather, without any ornamentation; the gauntlet is small and is of rich brown silk divided into panels by strips of a darker brown gimp; the base is cut into six scallops, edged with narrow gold lace, spangled, the divisions being decorated with bows of grey-ribbed ribbon; a band of wide brown gimp separates the gauntlet from the glove.
