Vintage Italian Kid Leather Gloves Crochet Lace Wedding Bridal Bride Beaded Embroidered

These gorgeous vintage gloves are marked "Real Kid Washable Made in Italy." The are made of very fine, supple kid leather in creamy off-white, embellished with a scalloped edge, two delicate crocheted lace inserts each, and lavish embroidered curlicues accented with tiny, simulated pearl seed beads. They likely date to the 1940s or 1950s.

The unlined gloves are a modern, wearable size 7 1/2 to 7 3/4, a contemporary size Medium. They are in excellent condition, with just very faint darkening on a few of the fingertips (slightly more on the right-hand palm). I have not attempted to clean them. They are the length that covers about half of the forearm (12 1/2" from longest fingertip to edge), so probably too short to be considered opera. As detailed as they are, they may well have been custom-made.

These beautiful gloves would make a stunning gift.
