Vintage White Crochet Lace Gloves

A while ago I bought these dainty vintage crochet lace gloves. The crochet thread is a very fine white cotton thread. They have two different crochet lace patterns: a decorative pattern on the upper side, and a simpler mesh pattern on the underside.

There’s an elastic round the wrist, covered with crochet stitches. And they are for very small hands. I don’t know from which era they are – maybe the 1950s or 1960s.

  1. Wow, these are really beautiful!
    I have made a pair of white lace gloves from a vintage magazine in a mercerized cotton, crocheted allover in a lover’s knot pattern.
    I wore them for a swing dance event and they completely lost shape (way too loose!).
    Do you have any tips on how to take care of them or even more specifically: will i be able to save mine and how??!
    In your almost indefinate knowledge about historical gaments, their production and care, can you help a girl out please?
    (Yes the buttering is intentional and purposeful but true none the less ;P)

    1. Thank you so much! 😀 I don’t know if you can save your gloves: but you can try washing them in hot water or even boiling them to shrink them. However, this may not work with cotton or it may make the gloves hard. Or you can try starching them and carefully pressing them into shape to make them smaller. But this will probably be difficult or not work at all. Sorry, I’m not much help! 🙂

      1. Thank you very much! I’ll try out your tips. Anyway my hope is not too high, but you know, any straw in reach for grasping, right? 😉
        I really like your whole website by the way, it kinda covers a lot of my interests 😃
        – and then so profoundly researched as well! Hats off to you.
