A pair of ladies cream warp knitted cotton fabric evening gloves, handsewn. Dated 1950 -1960's.
The Hong Kong fabric glove industry began to establish itself in the late 1940's by producing very basic classic cotton gloves. By the 1950's, more elaborate styles, fashionable and often embroidered or decorated began to be made. This pair is an excellent example.
