Cute pair of early 1900's, Victorian or Edwardian children hand knitted mittens,  Made in a dark green finer yarn with a tad of yellow mix, the mitten have an interesting weave.  Not sure if it would be called a cable but the same stitch finishes the scallop border around the top. 

Look at this!  Notice the top border of the one  ~ mother ran out of green thread, so finished with black.  Anything to keep her child's hands warm for the winter days coming on!   What a charming primitive look! 

The length of the mitten are 7" long from top to bottom.  Width across the palm is 3"wide.  Would fit a child about 8 yrs old. 

Condition:  although the mittens appear to have very little wear, There is a slit on one about 3/8" in length.(see photo)  Maybe it has gotten cut, caught or just unraveled.

Some of the pictures do show the color as gray but they actually are a dark green.
