James Daybell, Professor of Early Modern British History at Plymouth University and author of Gender, Power and Political Culture in Early Modern Europe (2016), looks at the ways in which gloves were instilled with power during the 16th and 17th century. He discusses how they operated as elaborate gifts that were richly displayed and communicated through elaborate imagery and design.
