South Wales and Pinkham gloves at their best


This stunning pair of black Nylon Pinkham gloves came to the collection from the Gingells in South Wales.

Anne and Loulou Gingell realised immediately that they were a pair of special gloves and in no time they had ‘come home’.

The combination of the shiny black Nylon fabric, the black wrist buttons and the paste rhinestones create a very stylish pair of gloves. Probably made in the late 1950s all of the adornments would have been sewn on by an outworker working from home, a common practice at the time.

Lots of good rugby and good taste in South Wales.

Many thanks go to Anne and Loulou.
