Single right-hand male gauntlet glove. Gove is cut in one piece with decorated gauntlet applied on top. Single small bow of pink silk ribbon survives just above its side opening on the palm. Applied gauntlet has stepped upper edge and is decorated front and back alike with a medallion containing a lion, post windmill and a head of a fish poking above the waves. Above the medallions within stepped sections, are birds with worms held in their beaks. Two of the medallions are linked by strapwork bands decorated with flowers and supporting a single squirrel in centre.
