Rare and wonderfully crafted late 1910s black mittens featuring silk bows and beautiful woven details. Pair with an antique Victorian coat or modern wear for a dark, timeless look! Unlined but opaque, pull-on, no closures.
MEASUREMENTS: (taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience) →palm: 3.5 inches →wrist: 3.25 inches →length: 9.5 inches
ESTIMATED SIZE: X-Small - Small; best for hands with shorter nails.
CONDITION: Very good antique condition. These present beautifully! The silk on the bows is starting to deteriorate -- it's noticeable when examined, but because these are just decorative, they should hang on a little longer and can be removed. There's one darned repair at the top of the fingers on the right mitten -- not noticeable when worn as it's on the underside. There's a little stress to the inside of the left thumb. Additionally, the inside of these gloves are shedding a bit -- this feels like a rayon mix, and it sometimes happens with this fabric. They're sturdy and wearable, but your hands might come out a little black! Priced accordingly; these are just divine in construction and style. 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; appears professionally made. Appears to be made of wool and rayon, plus silk accent bows. Hand wash.
