A pair of young girls' pink leather daywear, made with fine brosser stitching in France in 1890's. Special features are the long palm vent secured by an adjustable narrow braid and the fine white edge at the cuff.
A rare example of late Victorian gloves. The size would indicate that they were a young ladies's gloves, very pretty, French, made beautifully by the firm of Jouvin, Grenoble.
