Embroidered cream-colored silk mitts, British, first quarter of the 18th C. An example of fine English embroidery, the design on these mitts is worked in a naturalistic style with the use of gradated color that adds depth and richness to the motifs. As an extra luxurious detail, the underside of the V-shaped extension, which would not have been visible, carries its own delicate floral embroidery.
