Measures: 8” wrist to fingertip, 3” wide
These gloves are absolutely butter soft! They are made of Cabretta leather which is a high quality leather used specifically for making dress gloves. Van Raalte Company was founded in 1907 by Emmanuel and Zealie Van Raalte. Van Raalte was a maker of fine lingerie, gloves and stockings. They were known for their high level of quality, the company slogan was “Van Raalte: Because You Love Nice Things”. I believe these gloves date to the 1960’s or 1970’s. They are lined in acrylic which was introduced in the US in the 1950’s. They are a size medium but will fit a small hand, they are quite petite! They are in very good condition, it doesn’t appear that they were worn often – I suspect they were saved for “best”.
