I picked them up in a large auction lot, along with an identical but all white pair. No markings inside or out. (thanks to my 6 year old for modeling these tiny gloves). if anyone knows anything, i would really appreciate the information!

Well I found these two different ads with the same gloves except in suede. At least they (maybe) narrow it down to two decades. :tdown:

Fabulous gloves!!!!

I think they might be older than 1950s though
Thanks, papertiger! I am hoping to snap some pics of other items that came in the lot for possible context clues. It was a very interesting lot! unfortunately (for me), the previous owner had absolutely tiny hands and head. Fortunately, she had really cool taste!

Ok, so i do not know if these will be helpful, but these are a few of the other somewhat unique items in the lot, including the all white pair, three other pairs of gloves, all kidd and paper thin, an older BV clutch (boxermom felt 1980s), a coblentz fold over clutch with mirror, change purse, and comb, mink cap (yes, those are tiny claws), and a fabulous faux leopard cape that is really heavy! I gave much of the lot to my mom, including a very 60s lord and taylor asian inspired dress. Apart from maybe the other gloves and the hat, i doubt the others are contemporary to the gloves, but you never know. anyone? Even the proper name for that type or shape of glove migt help. thanks for looking!

G-orgeous H-eaven
OK, well the other gloves, and the hat are indeed late-1950s :yes:

My guess is that the coat is late-1950s too from the label, cut and the buttons. Presuming the black fold-over clutch with mirror is too, even without having it in my hands

Agreeing with boxermom on the 1980s Bottega Veneta (esp since the company didn't start until the mid-1960s)

Thanks, PT! The buttons are my favorite part of the cape (apart from turning out to be a cape when I thought it was going to be a coat)!
