1950s White French Kid Leather Opera Gloves

 

 

 

A classically elegant bridal accessory, its easy to forget that until 1960, gloves were considered de rigueur for ladies' day wear. Gloves are still a recommended accessory for formal wedding etiquette, and kid leather is the most formal glove fabric you can wear. In white split kid leather, these gloves are soft and supple and perfect with a sleeveless gown. Measuring 15 1/2" long from the bottom of the thumb to the cuff, these are considered 16 button gloves, reaching to the upper arm. They have 3 faux pearl buttons at the wrist. Labeled a size 8, made in France for the May Co.  A few smudges at the wrist of both gloves near and beneath the buttons, and faint at the pad of the fingertips, otherwise they are in pretty darn good condition - we hope our skin looks that good when its that old. $55
