A Pair of Velvet Gloves - Franchesca Havas

This image is of Madeleine de La Tour d'Auvergne, she is holding a pair of velvet gloves. It is one of the few representations of Italian velvet gloves in this period, 1532. The painting is at the Uffizi, the artist is Jean Perréal.

I will be making cuffs to go with the gloves but my main focus was finding the gloves in velvet in period.

I will posting the chronology of my search and notes on my live journal in the next few days. :)
