The Glove Collection Trust forms part of the Worshipful Company of Glovers of London. The Trust owns a large collection of historical and modern gloves dating from the seventeenth century onwards. Many of these items are decorated with embroidery and various forms of lace, especially the earlier examples.

The historical gloves from the Trust’s collection are on loan to the Fashion Museum, Bath, England, while the contemporary gloves are housed at Waddesdon Manor, Buckinghamshire (a National Trust property). The gloves on loan to the Fashion Museum, Bath, include the duplicate coronation gloves of the British monarchs.
