Women's Wool Gloves
In brown and white wool.
Art work details
Each glove is made in one piece with two gussets for each finger and a separately made thumb piece. The wrist has a scalloped edge and a piece of elastic tape sewn to the inside. The points on the back of the hand are hand embroidered in brown silk close fishbone-stitch.
The gloves show moth damage which explains why woollen gloves are so rare. They came from the Annabel-Cooper family of Annabel's Farm, Thorpe-in-the-Glebe, Nottinghamshire.
