Wonderful gloves!
I bought these gloves for a formal daytime steampunk outfit I'm putting together, and I am very impressed with them! They fit well, look amazing, and work well with my smartphone. I love the leather trim! I would recommend these gloves to anyone.

Best gloves ever!
These gloves fit beautifully and look lovely. The fabric is soft but appears durable. Best of all, one can operate a touchscreen phone with them on! I will definitely be purchasing more pairs of these gloves!

Papillon gloves
Fit and look prefect. I don't have the most dandy hands, but this material is forgiving and has a little stretch. Can't wait till Autumn.

Lovely Gloves
These are nice and stretchy. I have chubby hands and it's always a gamble whether gloves bought online will fit, but these fit great!

Great gloves
Black gloves with silver buttons that almost look like pewter. Lots of nice detail. I was very pleased.

Love the "touchscreen finger"
These gloves are the perfect autumn or spring pair perfectly suited to everyday wear. Black stretchy polyester with lovely fine details around the ornamental straps and stitching with the cutest butterfly engraving on the small metal buttons. But the best part is the "touchscreen finger" which surprisingly works really well and I can now look forward to the first cold morning I need to break out these classic looking gloves that suit both modern and more classical looks.

Nice quality and a good fit. A lady goes nowhere without her gloves. A nice addition to my other authentic clothing.

Loved it
Good pair of gloves that come with mesh over the thumb and index finger tip to allow you to text and operate your phone without needed to take them off! (I have not tried texting yet though so don't quote me on performance yet.) I wish the buttons were metal and a little more sturdier, but they're lovely all the same. A great piece to own and fit like a glove! ;)

Adorable gloves
I wanted a simple comfortable and versatile pair of gloves. Which I found in this pair. They're comfortable I have slightly smaller hands and they still fit me well. I like the finishing touches of the buttons with little butterflies on them. The fingertips have a special patch that you can use your smartphones as well. I did like that. For the price you won't find a classier pair of gloves.

Loved these gloves... Perfect addition to my cosplay to celebrate a Victorian Christmas. Kept my hands warm and toasty, and was pleasantly surprised that the index fingers were smartphone compatible! It was a detail that was most welcomed. Thanks again!

Cute gloves
These gloves are well made and absolutely adorable on. My daughter plans to use them as her winter gloves this year. I think they're a great value and highly recommend them.

Great gloves!!
Got these as a gift for my girlfriend. She uses them while driving and loves them! Apparently they're thin enough to pull off easily, but warm enough to keep her hands from freezing off when she touches the steering wheel. A good buy.

High quality and beautiful
I love these gloves. Simple, elegant and beautiful, made with obvious craftsmanship and high quality materials. They're thin enough to toss in my purse, but warm enough to warm my hands if there's a chill in the air.

Luxurious fabric, short fingers
The fabric on these gloves is wonderful, and the stitching is high-quality. For my outfit I rolled the backs down and pinned some things to the edges of the gloves, but the gloves held up wonderfully and didn't complain as I stretched them around. The major downside here is that I have large hands for a lady, and the fingers on these gloves are stubby for me... not unexpected (and certainly a problem I have had before), but it unfortunately keeps me from loving them. So... if you've large hands, know that these gloves fit like others you have likely encountered.

Fingerless Gloves
Love the gloves! I play guitar in a choral ensemble and we perform in Victorian costumes this time of the year. The gloves allow me to easily play the guitar while staying in character!

fingerless lace gloves
First off this product was awesome! With fat lady fingers, these gloves fit and were stretchable. Bought 3 for a wedding for myself and my two sisters. (The Oct 31-st wedding is Steam Punk themed.) All were pleased with these gloves. They were pretty and delicate with a ruffled edge. Everything with this purchase came quickly on standard post.

Look good
The fingerless lace gloves look good. I would prefer if you could offer cotton instead of synthetic material. Cotton would feel better, be less slippery, and more authentic.

Timeless Inspiration
I purchased two outfits from the Historical Emporium to depict a specific time period. I purchased one outfit for myself and one for my daughter. We received several compliments and many of our friends inquired about where we made our purchases. I called two or three times as I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted or needed. Each time I spoke with a friendly and helpful store representative. I felt great about my experience and would recommend this agency whole-heartedly.

Fingerless Lace Gloves
Love these gloves..First I wanted full finger gloves,but, were out of stock so I had to order the fingerless in black. I am glad I did because I could keep them on all night and could eat, drink and anything else. Nice quality and beautiful on the hands. Looking forward to wearing them again.
