Fashioned from fine Spanish kid, these gloves embody high fashion with a double historical twist. The lattice pattern expresses the geometry of the newly-resurrected design vocbulary of the classical period, while the figures at the top are taken from a series of etchings by Jacques Callot (1592-1635) entitled Varie Figure Gobbi (Various Hunchbacked Figures) ca. 1622., which William Konig (active ca. 1721) interpreted in prints. Callot was an ancestor of the famed Parisian couturieres, The Callot Sisters.
