Vintage 1950s Long Brown Kid Leather Gloves Unused Made in France Ladies Sz 6.5


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a beautiful quality pair of unused 1960s era brown leather gloves that were made in France.  They came with a lot of gloves that I recently acquired, most unused and all dating to the 1950s and 60s.  They are in like-new condition, as they are still connected with their original string and have been well stored.  The interiors of the gloves are stamped “6 1/2 Made in France Real Kid” and “WPL 9111 100% Pure Silk”. The WPL numbers pre-dated RN textile numbers and were issued between 1941 and 1959.  WPL 9111 was issued to Shalimar Vanity Gloves Inc. of New York City - they would have acted as a distributor and importer of these gloves.

Size: The interior is stamped as a size 6 1/2, but please rely on the following measurements.  They have a length of 16 1/4” to the middle finger.  They measure 3” across the palm - although there is some stretch, please be aware of this measurement, perhaps measure another pair of gloves that you may own and know that new gloves need to be worked in.  The middle finger measures 3 1/4” in length.  

This is a fabulous quality pair of unused vintage gloves as one would expect from French manufacture of the period - soft kid leather and silk lining!
