These bespoke gloves feature imagery based on gin botanicals and Hogarth’s Gin Lane etching, showing the unfortunate fate of the street babies.

The handmade gloves with metal work embroidery, are inspired by the Fanshaw Dress on view at the Museum of London.

Ann Fanshaw, wore a magnificent dress of Spitalfields silk to a ball celebrating her father becoming Lord Mayor.

Her father, Crisp Gascoyne, was a master brewer based in the City of London, whose trade is reflected in the weave of the fabric which features bales, anchors, barley and hops.
