These gloves were made in France during the 1940s. The tops of the gloves have three raised lines of decorative stitching. They gauntlet cuff section is stitched on separately and flares at the wrist. There are and have side splits to the outer edges.
Inside are the words 'Made in France' and the size 7 1/2. The fingers are quite long, and I would say that they are a tight 7 1/2, however, they have some stretch in them and will 'give'
to your hand size when worn.
These gloves are in very good condition. They don't look as though they have ever been worn. However, there are a few spots of age on the cuffs which I have tried to show in the last three photos, which in honesty can't be seen unless you inspect very carefully. I have shown them because they seemed to show up more in the photos than in real life.
I think they would make good gloves for horse riding as well as driving or general wear. They would also be great costume props and a perfect addition to your vintage wardrobe.
Size: 7 1/2

Vintage 1950s Ladies Black Gloves - Black Cotton
A pair of elegant and stylish black cotton gloves with a faux fur split cuff. Made in Western Germany by Wear Right, in the 1950s, they extend beyond the wrist to part-way up the forearm.
The cuffs , which are approx. 2 inches in depth, can be worn with the faux fur turned down, as in the photos, so that you get a pair of winter gloves, or turn them up and get an elegant pair of longer plain black cotton evening gloves, which would look stunning with 1950s style three quarter sleeve dress or coat. So - two different styles in one!
In excellent, as new condition with no holes or snags, these gloves have been very well looked after through the years.
Great for Autumn/Winter wear, or to an evening at a restaurant/party worn longer. Might also be great for a fashion student or as an addition to an am-dram wardrobe.
Size: 7 stated on label
Price: 22 euro
1950s Stetson Purple/Brown Gloves with Button Detail at Wrist

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.

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.
