ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS VINTAGE '50s ELAYNE GLOVES WITH A ROLLED CUFF ENCRUSTED WITH BRILLIANTLY SPARKLING RHINESTONE
Absolutely gorgeous vintage '50s off white gloves by Elayne with a rolled cuff encrusted with brilliantly sparkling rhinestones.
The vintage gloves sparkle brilliantly under evening lights & are just gorgeous.
It is a bit difficult to read the tag but I believe it says “A” referring to the size. I wear a size 6 - 6-½ & although I could get them on by "working" them on, I would not recommend them if you wear size 6. They actually would fit a smaller hand like a 5-½ - 6 better. The gloves look small when they are not on but there is a lot of stretch to them since I was able to get them on. There is a bit of elastic in the back at the top of the gloves for a good fit.
The tiny hems inside the gloves have come undone in places but it is not necessary to have them sewn down as no one will ever see that. Some light yellowing on top of one of the gloves with a little pilling but the yellowing might come out with an oxy soak but cannot guarantee that. It is pale enough that I never noticed it all these years & only saw it under certain lighting conditions. So I am sure no one else will notice it either unless closely examining the glove.
They would be stunning with a suit when attending a wedding, a bridal gown or for an evening on the town with a cocktail dress or evening gown.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
