A ladies' white linen tapelace glove and a matching single glove panel, probably Flemish, late 18th or early 19th century, the guipure tape made to shape, each with a design of large single bloom and coiling leaves on stem, and edged in bobbin tape, 37.5 cm long. Although the large sprouting bloom motif can be found in the late 17th and early 18th century, the long slim shape of the elbow length gloves suggests a late 18th or early 19th century date.

Part of the Collection donated to the Livery in 1959 by the late Robert Spence. Conserved 1995 – 1999 with help from the NHLF.
