A pair of pale yellow Limerick leather gloves, made of one long piece with a separate piece for the thumb and gusseted fingers.They are marked inside right glove by hand: 'Lyons Limerick Ireland'
These gloves reveal the plumpness of Princess Charlotte's fingers and arms. They were always worn with dinner and evening dresses, and were usually of the finest kid. The yellow 'chicken skin' gloves were made from the thin, but still strong, skin of unborn calves.
