One of a pair of gauntlet gloves of soft dark cream kid or lamb skin dressed flesh-side out. Gauntlets, cut separately, have a straight wrist band and six square-ended tabs lined with deep pink taffeta. Its outside is covered with purple satin and embroidered with floss silks, silver and silver-gilt thread, and purl in long and short, satin and stem stitches, with laid and couched work, partially padded. The wrist bands are decorated with elongated S-shapes with butterfly-like motifs where they join and small floral sprigs. The tabs are decorated, front and back, with upright sprigs of pansy and marigold with a bunch or sheaf of small-headed flowers.
