This item is a stunning pair of Vintage Capretto kid leather embroidered gloves. They are a soft bone white kid leather that is embroidered with a matching flower bouquet on each glove. One glove is stamped on the interior with "M/P MADE IN ITALY CAPRETTO 6 1/2" They are also stamped on the inside with "50 and 571".
Condition: While this pair of gloves is in very good vintage condition, I have to point out of few things I have noticed. There is a small gap on the stitching at the thumb seam of one of the gloves. It looks like maybe a few of the stitches are loose. You can also barely see two tiny pin holes at the seam of the sleeve where they were tagged together as a pair with a piece of thread. And, I find two slight marks on the leather. These are very minor for the age of these gloves. I do not see any stretching of the leather nor do I find any pulling or looseness of the embroidery. The gloves are in the original clear sleeve holder.
Size: I do not know how to size gloves. These are marked on the inside with 6 1/2. They measure about 10 1/2" from the wrist to the tip of the longest finger. The width is about 3" across.
These gloves are from a private estate. I am guessing they are probably from the 1950's. The leather is soft and the embroidery is beautiful.
