A History of the Worshipful Company of Glovers of London (Paperback)Ralph W. Waggett (author)

In a well researched narrative, the author traces the decline of the Company around 1318; when it joined with the Pursers to help revive its fortunes, through to the 16th and 17th centuries when there was a flowering of craftsmanship, which produced exquisite gloves richly embroidered with multi-coloured silks and seed pearls, trimmed with metallic lace and decorated with ribbons. It now ranks among the most active of London's Livery Companies, and this book will be welcomed by everyone in the heritage of the city of London and in glove making.
