William III and the War in Ireland in Twelve Objects: 2. King William’s Gauntlets

Updated: Jun 1

These leather riding gloves belonged to King William III and were donated to the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland by the Blacker family of County Armagh.


They are made from leather and were designed to be worn over smaller gloves. Gloves like these were much more durable than the thinner court gloves worn by the upper class in everyday life.
