Previous Owners Father
Special Memories ‘He was meticulous in his appearance; he hated to have dirty hands. He didn’t like to paint because he didn’t want to get his hands dirty. He was about 5” 4. He took great care of these mittens. He died when he was 47 years old. My son, Andrew, who is very like my father had a real affinity with the gloves. He was born nine months after my father died. When I am sad I cuddle it. I also smell it to remind me of him.’
