Metal glove buttons impressed with designs or maker’s trademarks. Gloves had a much greater social significance in the past than they do now and persons of wealth and social standings were correctly gloved at all times-a social custom which reached its zenith in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Hence, gloves were made not only for outdoors, to keep the hands warm, but for morning, afternoon and evening wear, indoors and out, in a wide range of fabrics and colors.
