A man's tabbed gauntlet glove (1600-1620)

Made of buff leather, 12 inches in length. The gauntlets are divided into eight panels, four in front and four at back, the material being white satin embroidered with flowers and foliage in aesthetic-coloured silk, the stems of which are of gold thread. Each panel is edged with spangled gold lace and lined with rose-coloured silk; a gusset is inserted between each panel to give strength to the upper part; a rucking of rose coloured silk, edged with gold lace, divides the glove from the gauntlet at the wrist. Previously thought to have belonged to Henry VII.
