Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Classic with just a bit of Victorian flair 1900s black cable-knit mittens featuring a lovely pattern and scalloped detail at the wrist. Pair with other antique wonders for a period-perfect look, or don with modern wear to keep winter at bay. Unlined, semi-sheer, pull-on, no closures.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat) →palm: 3 inches →wrist: 5 inches around →opening: 4 inches →length: 9.5 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: US 6 - 6.5, but most definitely for a narrow palm and shorter nails. These have some cross-wise stretch, but I recommend a bit of a looser fit on antique treasures like this.
CONDITION: Good antique condition. There's an old darned spot on the right palm, which shouldn't be visible while worn, and some general wear and fading throughout, appropriate to its age. There's a bit of an odd sheen throughout and these came to me with a waxy substance on the fingertips -- I imagine these are the remnants of waterproofing techniques of the era, which included things like oil-dipping and beeswax, though I suppose someone could have tried to iron these, too. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appear to be made of a silk blend, possibly wool and/or cotton. Hand wash or dry clean.
PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers only accepts returns if a mistake was made in describing the garment, for which we ask you to contact us within 3 days of receiving the garment.
