A pair of ladies' navy nylon simplex palm and stretch crochet back daywear gloves, dated 1940's, chainstitched with a loop strap through eyelets on the back. “Ladycape” nylon fabric printed inside each glove.
This pair is one of twelve which belonged to Mrs Doris Ethel Howard (1899-1947) who lived in South Africa. An interesting collection because of their variety and different countries of origin.
Donated by Mrs Ruth May of Perth, Western Australia in March 2006.
