Vintage Black Kid Leather Gloves Shalimar Vanity NY 1950s France Ladies Size 6.5
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a very nice quality pair of 1950s era black kid leather gloves made in France. The gloves are marked “Made in France Real Kid Washable WPL 9111”. 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. They are silk lined, very luxurious. They look to have seen little use - in very nice condition, please ignore the crease highlights caused by photo lighting.
Size: They are stamped as a size 6 1/2, but please rely on the following measurements. They have a length of 14 3/4” 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. The middle finger measures 3 1/8” in length.
This is a wonderful pair of vintage gloves, very nice quality with silk linings!
