A touch of elegance


The saying coined by Leslie Pinkham in a 1950s advert A touch of Elegance could not be better exemplified than by this magnificent pair of gloves from the 1950s.

They show off not only beautiful design but all the skills of the cutter and the machinist who made them.

These would have been a considered purchase by someone of great taste. Having never been worn they came from an estate in Scotland and found their way to the Pinkham Collection earlier this year. They are both exceptional and unusual.
