1950s Stetson Purple/Brown Gloves with Button Detail at Wrist
A pair of mink brown (or maybe they are light purple - I can't describe the colour - but the photo's are accurate) nylon vintage gloves from the 1950's, made in the US by Stetson. They have a band of decorative stitching along the back of the hand, and a decorative material strip detail at each side of the wrist, with buttons. The palm side is elasticated at the wrist.
In excellent condition.
Very hard to find, very 50's, very secretary/geek, very you.... a must for your collection of vintage accessories.
Size: Medium. Quite stretchy.
Price: 28 euro
Vintage Swinging 60s Yellow Gloves with Rings
These gloves are from the 1960's - that lovely period in time. Remember the Swinging 60's? Short geometric shift dresses and PVC, modelled by Jean Shrimpton (The Shrimp), and Twiggy, Carnaby Street, Mods. Groovy Baby!
A fantastic pair of pale yellow, short wrist gloves in a ridged material with a decorative strip and ring wrist detail. In very good condition. There is a tiny mark (I mean REALLY tiny) on the top of the right hand glove below the middle finger. I have tried to show it in the fifth photo, but it's so small, you'll have to look really hard to see it. Apart from that they look as though they have never been worn.
Made in England.
Size: 6 1/2 but quite stretchy. They would fit me and I am a 7 1/2
Price: 24 euro
Vintage White Cotton Ladies Gloves - 1950s - Bridal/Wedding Gloves
A pretty pair of vintage 1950s white cotton ladies gloves. They are decorated with three lines of stitching at the front, and fit slightly higher up the wrist.
These gloves have been freshly laundered and are in very good condition with no broken threads. There are however, two tiny stains at the tip of the fingertips of the left hand glove, which I've shown in the last photo. One is barely noticeable, one a tiny bit bigger. (I like to think they were from the champagne glass the previous owner was holding while she adjusted her pearls.)
I don't know the exact size I'm afraid, but they are small. Probably a six.
Perfect little gloves to wear to a white wedding, for the vintage bride, or bridesmaid, especially if the wedding is held in the winter, spring or autumn months, when the weather is not so warm.
During the 1950s, winter white was such a popular colour. It makes a lady feel soft and pretty, especially when wearing a hat, gloves and carrying a pretty hanky.
