Vintage White Cotton Ladies Gloves - 1950s - Bridal/Wedding Gloves
A pretty pair of vintage 1950s white cotton ladies gloves. They are decorated with three lines of stitching at the front, and fit slightly higher up the wrist.

These gloves have been freshly laundered and are in very good condition with no broken threads. There are however, two tiny stains at the tip of the fingertips of the left hand glove, which I've shown in the last photo. One is barely noticeable, one a tiny bit bigger. (I like to think they were from the champagne glass the previous owner was holding while she adjusted her pearls.)

I don't know the exact size I'm afraid, but they are small. Probably a six.

Perfect little gloves to wear to a white wedding, for the vintage bride, or bridesmaid, especially if the wedding is held in the winter, spring or autumn months, when the weather is not so warm.

During the 1950s, winter white was such a popular colour. It makes a lady feel soft and pretty, especially when wearing a hat, gloves and carrying a pretty hanky.

I have the hat for sale too.

Vintage French Ladies White Gloves - 1950s - White Jersey Stretch Vintage Gloves
A pretty pair of vintage 1950s white jersey ladies gloves. They are wrist length with a 'v' shaped slit and cross bar.

Gloves measure 8 ins from wrist to finger tip and 3 ins across. They have some stretch to them.

They are in good condition for their age, but there is one small faint yellow stain on the back of the right hand glove. I wonder if the lady spilt a little champagne or white wine on it from her glass back in the day. I've shown it in the last photo.

Tres chic!

Vintage 60s Pale Tan Gloves - Ladies Leather Kid Gloves - Tiny Bow
These vintage 1960s ladies kid gloves were taken from their original plastic presentation bag which labelled them as size 7 1/2 and are in unworn/perfect condition except for the fact that there are two tiny holes at the back of the wrist in the corner, where they were clipped together. I have shown this in the last photo. A silly thing for a shop owner to do with kid gloves, but there it is.

These are in a pale tan/ cafe au lait colour and are detailed with a raised decorative fit seam which is trimmed with a tiny bow, and a frill cut edge to the wrist. They are soooo pretty. They don't make them like this any more!

Length: 8.75 inches/ 22 cms
Width (below thumb): 3.5 inches/ 9 cms (these will stretch to custom fit the hand)

Vintage Swinging 60s Yellow Gloves with Rings
These gloves are from the 1960's - that lovely period in time. Remember the Swinging 60's? Short geometric shift dresses and PVC, modelled by Jean Shrimpton (The Shrimp), and Twiggy, Carnaby Street, Mods. Groovy Baby!

A fantastic pair of pale yellow, short wrist gloves in a ridged material with a decorative strip and ring wrist detail. In very good condition. There is a tiny mark (I mean REALLY tiny) on the top of the right hand glove below the middle finger. I have tried to show it in the fifth photo, but it's so small, you'll have to look really hard to see it. Apart from that they look as though they have never been worn.

Made in England.

Rare Vintage 1940s Hand Embroidered Black Crepe Scarf/Necktie
A rare and very beautiful vintage crepe scarf/necktie dating from the 1940s.

The hand embroidery at both pointed ends of the scarf is exquisite in gold metallic, blue, pink and fawn thread, and the scarf is edged all the way round.

It measures approximately 6 inches wide and 32 inches long. It is in fabulous condition apart from one pin prick hole which I have shown in the third photograph. This can be seen when the scarf is held up to the light but is imperceptible otherwise.

A unique item that would definitely attract comment when worn. Wear it as a tie, a scarf, tied to the side, the front, to a handbag handle as decoration, around the head (in many ways). A really versatile one off!

After the end of World War II, Cardin moved to Paris and worked for a succession of couture houses, before taking a job with Christian Dior in 1946. Cardin went solo in 1950, and quickly won attention for his novel style.

Diaphanous Black Tasselled Beaded Embroidered Evening Scarf/Wrap - Vintage 1950s
A sleek and graceful black evening scarf in a fine, sheer diaphanous material with beaded embroidered top and bottom edges which have tassels too, and beaded hand embroidered swirls throughout.

I'm not entirely sure what the material is. Possibly Polyester.

This scarf is very long at 66 inches and can be used as a wrap, or wrapped around the neck with the ends hanging down the front. It is in beautiful condition and I doubt that it has been worn much, if at all! It measures 66 by 13 inches and the tassels add on an extra 7 inches both ends. Would make a lovely addition to any evening outfit.

Length: 66 inches x 13 inches with a further 7 inches at each end for the tassels
(167 cm x 33cm x 17 at each end for tassels)

A good quality, medium weight silk with dusky colours.

Vintage Nina Ricci Designer Silk Scarf - Paris 1960s - Beige/Baby Pink
A gorgeous 100% pure silk scarf made in Paris in the 1960s by the designer Nina Ricci.

The scarf is square, with a central block of colour in baby pink, and mink/beige outer block. The hand rolled and sewn edges are in baby pink and are still thick and plump, as they should be.

The Nina Ricci signature is in black in one corner of the pink central block, together with the word 'Paris'.

The scarf is in very good condition, with a small defect which I tried to catch on camera. It's the last photo. It looks like the grain of the silk has moved apart where the scarf has been folded over the years. It's about 2 inches long, just above the fold as it is now. It looks like a fine grey mark, but it isn't a mark. If I didn't tell you, you probably wouldn't notice it, but I'm telling you anyway.

A really quite luxurious scarf in colour, material, design and name. Enjoy!
