Pair of stage-worn custom-made long black gloves, worn by Prince during the Purple Rain tour in 1984–85. Gloves measure approximately 25” long and are adorned with black beads along one edge. Accompanied by a 1998 letter of provenance from the Revolution’s drummer Bobby Z which reads, in part: “This letter is to authenticate a pair of long black custom-made gloves…worn by Prince during the Purple Rain US tour…I was the drummer in Prince and the Revolution; these were given to me by the wardrobe department at the end of the tour.” In fine condition. Any stage-worn item from Price is quite rare, particularly as luxurious and dramatic as these gloves. RR Auction COA.
