From an old Ohio estate, a pair of Civil War era hand knitted fingerless mitts gloves. A nice addition to a reenactment costume. A wonderful red color, the mitts are embellished with chinelle embroidery in a herringbone pattern. Red silk velvet bow further accents the top of the mitts.
Mitts measure 6" long x 3-1/2" across the top of hand. Guessing they may be a size 6. Very wearable. Condition is very good especially considering the age. Although I will say, some darken smudge to one.
