These just scream Lady Gaga to me. Or maybe Alexander McQueen. So badass.  "A pair of men's knitted silk and gold thread gloves, probably Italian, circa 1650 – 80, of pale yellow silk worked overall with gold thread lozenges, which join up to form lines over the knuckles, the fingers with small gold spots, luxurious deep gold thread fringing, 26 cm long, (holes in the index fingers and thumbs, apparently deliberate, indicate liturgical use)."

Silk and metallic knitted mitts, European, late 17th C. Knitted in the round with no seams, this mitt is among a finite number of extant 17th century silk and metallic knit objects. Fine workmanship was required to incorporate the rigid metallic yarns into the silk stockinette without distorting the pattern. The brocade lining at top of this piece adds both beauty and stability to the knitted extension.

A single knitted silk glove, probably Italian, second half of 17th century, of pale green silk and gold threads, lined with matching plain silk fabric, with slightly angular gauntlet knitted with gold diagonal bands and medallions (similar to 23407), and IHS emblem within flame medallion, narrow gilt stripes to the fingers, 25 cm long, applied with two red wax seals which appear to be papal seals, possibly denoting that this glove may have been worn by a Pope.
