Kid Leather Opera Gloves
Beautiful ivory coloured Kid leather Opera gloves length ~20” with a wrist opening closing with three buttons. They are by Dickens and Jones, Regent Street, London and have their stamp inside one glove. The other has the size 63/4 and they measure ~5" across at their opening when laid flat. They are in quite good condition but do have some light spotting/ marking due to age, as shown in photos.
A bit of interesting history… the opera glove is a feminine adaptation of a style originally developed for use by French musketeers like the Three Musketeers! These gloves were made in singles for duelling, and fitted over the sleeve. For everyday dress they had wrist belts with buttons and jewelled clasps for court wear. When the “mousquetaire” was redesigned for ladies, it was refined so that the glove was much longer sometimes up to the shoulder.
