PLATE XXXI

BROWN GLOVES
SIXTEENTH CENTURY

A PAIR of gloves of a rich brown-coloured leather, measuring 12 inches from tip of the middle linger to the extreme edge of the fringe.

The gauntlets open on the outer side, as is usual, and are tastefully embroidered on both back and front with gold and silver thread. The lingers are plain stitched, and the inside of the gloves are of white kid. These also came from the same family as the previously illustrated gloves (Plate XXX.), and are the property of Seymour Lucas, Esqr., R.A.
