Banquet of the Worshipful Company of Glovers of London

Historical Association notes:

Ann Esslemont was the retiring Master Glover of the Worshipful Company of Glovers of London in 2015 and gifted a pair of these gloves to guests at the Banquet on 7 October 2015 at the end of her year of office. Ann wrote about her choice of this particular pair of gloves (in 2018): "Chosen because I thought they illustrated the quality of English workmanship as demonstrated by Dents. Mens' city wear gloves, every gentleman should have a pair! And the (tarty) scarlet silk lining, was a private joke by me, saying that my year was intended to be fun; it has a serious side, but underneath everything was "Let's have fun!!!".
