Object Description

A Charming Queen Anne Period Early 18th Century
Laburnum Wood Oyster Veneered Glove Box Having
Crossbanded Decoration To Hinged Top And Elegant
Cross Grain Mouldings

(Gloves were valued and fashionable items throughout the 17th
and 18th centuries and indeed they were required to be worn by
ladies whilst in attendance at court. The gloves which you could
afford and their condition was very much a symbol of status, so it
is natural that there were some very grand boxes made for the
storage of these gloves to ensure they were maintained in the best
possible way. This particular example is over 300 years old and in
excellent condition with some lovely banded decoration. It probably
would have had a silk lined interior originally which has been
removed at some point in its history.).
