Vintage Early 1900s Ivory Kid Leather Gloves Elbow Length
Gorgeous ivory kid leather gloves from I'd say the earlier half of the 1900s. Opera length. Each has 3 gorgeous snaps at the wrist that are some sort of early plastic, perhaps celluloid. The snaps have a floral pattern stamped in them. The insides of both of these have several rows of numbers written in them. I"ve absolutely no idea what they are for as they are not original to the gloves. Perhaps a previous owner had something they needed to remember and marked it inside these? I dont know, but they dont show when worn of course, and to me add to the charming vintage history of these.
Excellent vintage condition. The snaps on one hand have some chips in the decorative portions. They still snaps just fine though. There are some very minor marks.
Measures approx. 16" from tip of middle finger to end of cuff. Base of thumb ( at wrist) to thumb end is 4.5". Base of middle finger to finger end is 2.75".
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my utmost best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected, and there are occasionally small things I won't deem worthy of note. Please feel free to send me a missive with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat.
