VINTAGE OPERA LONG LENGTH SELECTA ELBOW LENGTH GLOVES IN LILY PAD

$ 51.99 $ 64.99

An elegant pair of vintage long opera gloves long length in a lovely shade of Lily Pad by Selecta Inc.

I wear a size 6-1/2 & they fit me and will fit smaller hands as well but not larger. These can be worn nearly up to the elbow as that is how they fit on me or down several inches & ruched.

They are marked "Size A" inside the gloves & are 17-5/8" from the middle finger to the top of the glove. The palm is 3" across or 6" circumference unstretched & there is not a lot of stretch in the gloves.  From the top of the glove to the end of the thumb is 6-7/8". The tag inside says "Selecta Inc. 100% Double Woven Nylon 90% Polyester 10% Nylon Fourchettes Made in Japan Size A."

There are inserts on each finger on the sides in a darker green strip for interest.  There are a few stitches that have come out on the seam of the apex of the thumb on one glove but it will only take a few stitches to close it.

They would look beautiful day or night when attending a wedding, with a Fall coat or dress.



Care Instructions

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.
