Nice Article about Gloves and Radiography of Stumpwork

(King Charles I and Henrietta Maria of France) (mid 17th century)

Mary Brooks posted a nice article about gloves for the NGV exhibition on English Embroidery last year accompanying a picture about the gold on leather embroidery.  Also included in the blogs, was the previous entry that examined the stumpwork picture below in the collection.  I love this article as it does the type of radiography that Mary and other colleagues of mine are starting to do on pieces to understand the construction of the stumpwork.  This one is particularly interesting for the wirework that showed up in the stuffed and raised stag.  I wouldn't have thought that there was a wire structure in there at all!
