Excerpt from The Connoisseur, Vol. 42: An Illustrated Magazine for Collectors; May-August, 1915

Gloves have also played their part at the coronations of our kings and queens, while up till 1821, when George IV. Was crowned, it was customary for the sovereign's champion to ap pear upon the scene, mounted and fully armed, and to throw down his glove, thus challenging any bold person who chose to dispute the accession. At the coronation of George II. The ceremony was marked by an unusual incident, for a dark stranger took up the challenge, and, announcing himself as the champion of the loose-living Pre tender, questioned the right of the House of Hanover to the throne. The result of the rash intruder's inter ference is not mentioned in history. Judges, too, gave an impetus to the glove trade of former days, for though their use was not permitted in court, should the assize conclude without the death penalty being ordered, the sheriffs were expected to pre sent the humane cadi with a pair of gloves. \vhen Jeffreys - most brutal of all brutes, and, according to Charles II., having more impudence than ten carted street-walkers - dispensed injustice, gifts of this cle scription were scarce; but in the reign of Henry VIII.
