I call this one "fingerless gloves". I was curious about the gloves called mitts..they were popular in the 1800's and perhaps these were handed down in her family..and she was a weird duck and wore them for her photograph. I also read where organists wore them..and ladies that smoked..OR perhaps this is a wedding photo and the gloves are her something old? Confirmation photos were usually taken holding a Bible or a song book..and she looks older than say the 15 year old that would have been confirmed. I believe this is probably a photo taken about 1910. Please leave me a comment with your thoughts!
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
