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.

1940s Cream Suede Kid Leather Ladies Gloves
Original vintage 1940s creamy yellow suede kid leather ladies gloves.
These gloves were made in England during the 1940s. The fronts have two raised lines of decorative stitching with a pattern of tiny holes along each side, and the backs have small sections of ruched elastic. They flare slightly at the wrist and have small side splits.
Inside are the words 'English Make' and the size 6 1/2.
These gloves are in excellent condition. They don't look as though they have ever been worn. A perfect addition to your vintage wardrobe.
Size: 6 1/2 (Small)
Vintage 1950s Ladies Black Gloves - Black Cotton
A pair of elegant and stylish black cotton gloves with a faux fur split cuff. Made in Western Germany by Wear Right, in the 1950s, they extend beyond the wrist to part-way up the forearm.
The cuffs , which are approx. 2 inches in depth, can be worn with the faux fur turned down, as in the photos, so that you get a pair of winter gloves, or turn them up and get an elegant pair of longer plain black cotton evening gloves, which would look stunning with 1950s style three quarter sleeve dress or coat. So - two different styles in one!
In excellent, as new condition with no holes or snags, these gloves have been very well looked after through the years.
Great for Autumn/Winter wear, or to an evening at a restaurant/party worn longer. Might also be great for a fashion student or as an addition to an am-dram wardrobe.
Size: 7 stated on label
Price: 22 euro
1950s Stetson Purple/Brown Gloves with Button Detail at Wrist
A pair of mink brown (or maybe they are light purple - I can't describe the colour - but the photo's are accurate) nylon vintage gloves from the 1950's, made in the US by Stetson. They have a band of decorative stitching along the back of the hand, and a decorative material strip detail at each side of the wrist, with buttons. The palm side is elasticated at the wrist.
In excellent condition.
Very hard to find, very 50's, very secretary/geek, very you.... a must for your collection of vintage accessories.
These gloves were made in France during the 1940s. The tops of the gloves have three raised lines of decorative stitching. They gauntlet cuff section is stitched on separately and flares at the wrist. There are and have side splits to the outer edges.
Inside are the words 'Made in France' and the size 7 1/2. The fingers are quite long, and I would say that they are a tight 7 1/2, however, they have some stretch in them and will 'give'
to your hand size when worn.
These gloves are in very good condition. They don't look as though they have ever been worn. However, there are a few spots of age on the cuffs which I have tried to show in the last three photos, which in honesty can't be seen unless you inspect very carefully. I have shown them because they seemed to show up more in the photos than in real life.
I think they would make good gloves for horse riding as well as driving or general wear. They would also be great costume props and a perfect addition to your vintage wardrobe.
Size: 7 1/2

Made in Paris in the 1980s, this beautiful scarf has hand rolled and sewn edges. The centre of the scarf is black, with the signature 'Kiss' sign in gold. The pattern is gold chains in triangles with internal colour blocks of turquoise, bright red, blue and purple.
The outer edge is outlined with the chains pattern and finished in black. The Paloma Picasso signature is the corner.
There are a few small marks on the scarf and one of the turquoise colour blocks has some small holes that look as though a brooch has been used to hold the scarf together. I have shown this in the last photograph. Apart from this the scarf is in very good condition. I have reflected the marks etc in the price.

Cardin went solo in 1950, and quickly won attention for his novel style.
Dark Moss Green/Cream Vintage Italian Silk Scarf - Michelangelo - 1970s
An Italian 100% pure silk scarf by Michelangelo Roma.
The pattern consists of squares of decreasing size in two shades of dark moss green, with a beige centre, and the edges are hand rolled and stitched.
The signature Michelangelo Roma is in one corner.
In very good condition apart from one tiny mark where it looks as though a brooch has been used to pin the scarf together at one time. The mark was too small to show up in a photo though. You may not have seen it if I hadn't mentioned it, but I'm mentioning it anyway.
Size: 30 ins x 30ins
Price: 18 euro
Suggestion: I have a scarf bail in the 'Other Handmade Accessories' category which goes really well with this scarf. The last picture of the scarf bail shows it with this scarf on a mannequin.
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)
Price: 24 euro

A vintage hand rolled and stitched scarf in beautiful shades of pale green, pale brown, rust, mustard and beige with black highlights, in an abstract geometric pattern.
Made in the 1980s, there is a signature, but I cannot find what it stands for anywhere. There are some small stains to the scarf. They may wash out, but I personally haven't tried. They are hardly noticeable. I have reflected this in the price.
Size: 32 x 31 inches
Price: 28 euro
