Dieser Handschuh ist abgebildet im Buch von J. & A. van Rymsdyk aus dem Jahr 1778 Magnificent Cabinet, the British Museum. Es enthält several figures of Sloane shells; in particular a plate devoted to the Pinna, ‚Pinna marina‘ or Fan Mussel, with figures of the shell, and a pair of gloves woven from the fibres of its silky byssus, from Andalusia, presented to Sir Hans Sloane by the Duke of Richmond. One of these gloves is still extant and in good preservation. Falls diese Handschuhe tatsächlich aus Andalusien kommen würden, wäre es bis heute das einzige Objekt aus Spanien.
