Prince – Owned & Stage Worn Custom Made Tasseled Gloves, With Photo Documentation
From the collection of a former employee of Paisley Park, we are proud to offer a pair of Prince owned and stage worn black tasseled gloves. Prince can be seen wearing these custom-made gloves (with matching pants) in two separate full-page photographs from the 1990 Nude Tour program, a mint copy of which is included.
Their is no label inside these custom made gloves. Prince’s Paisley Park studios had its own custom clothing shop, where designers made all of his clothes and many items for his band. It’s almost a certainty that these were made by Paisley Park’s designers. Hidden beneath the tassels on the narrow end is a velcro sleeve opening, which would allow Prince to fit his hands through the opening. The gloves are in excellent condition (this is one of a few identical pair Prince used). They measure 6” x 18” (not counting the tassels.)
Recordmecca’s owner, Jeff Gold, is a former Executive Vice President/General Manager of Warner Bros. Records, who worked closely with Prince during the 1990’s, and art directed numerous album covers for him, including “Diamonds & Pearls”, “Love Symbol” and “The Hits/The B-Sides”. Gold’s account of working with Prince can be seen at http://recordmecca.com/news/working-with-prince/.
Included is a Letter of Authenticity from Jeff Gold with Recordmecca’s lifetime guarantee of authenticity. An exceptional Prince collectible with superb provenance.
