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.

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!

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.

almost perfect..
I love these gloves. They look great with everything, and they're decently warm for someone who is always cold. The best part is the way they hug each finger. The only thing is it came unraveled at the seam at the wrist after just wearing them a few times. Nothing came of it, I wore them the rest of the winter and it didn't come unraveled that much more or undermine the integrity of the material. It's just sad it had to happen so soon. I could probably sew it up real fast if I wasn't so lazy...but I shouldn't have to. Oh well.

Elegant and classy
These gloves are awesome. I bought them to class-up my winter outfits and they totally did the job! Unfortunately the buttons are plastic...and you can tell. But really that's the only problem I have with them and honestly, that's just put me on a button search so I can replace them myself. The fit of the gloves is wonderful considering I have big, wide palms! (Most gloves don't fit me at all!) All in all I give a solid 4 stars :)

Silky!
These are lovely gloves. They are a synthetic (like an isotoner), so if you are looking for a more historically accurate fabric, these might not be for you. BUT, if you want a nice pair of gloves, that will do for most situations, these are the ones. I have small hands and they fit nicely.

I love these gloves. Comfortable and attractive. I wish they came in brown too. Probably getting an extra pair so I can have one with silver buttons and one with my own brass steampunk buttons.

my beautiful gloves!
I bought 2 pairs of fingerless lace gloves from this company and am absolutely thrilled with them! They are so pretty, real lace instead of unfinished looking crochet mesh. They fit snugly but without being restrictive. My hands tend to swell, so this is important to me. They are just past the wristbone. I bought one white and one black pair to go with 2 different outfits for my sister's vow renewal and my son's wedding in July. These will be dressy without overheating my hands in a Midwest July. It only took 3 days to receive my order and it arrived in great condition! I have a few other things I intend to order from Historical Emporium very soon!

Very pretty gloves
I received many compliments recently when I wore these fingerless lace gloves to a Jane Austen celebration. It was in daytime, and I didn't think my long gloves would be appropriate. I wore them with a white dress trimmed in lace.

BEAUTIFUL Gloves
These are absolutely charming and fit so well with my Lucille Walking suits. My only disappointment is that the hand and finger portion will not take dye. I believe they must be some kind of plastic. The lace on the fingers and at the wrist did accept the dye (I used tea, which wasn't strong enough, then coffe) I was trying to make them match the cream lace on the walking suits which is a cream. But, they fit beautifully and will add a touch of authenticity to my outfit at events. Also, one finger came unsewed, but I'm able to fix that. Not too surprising since the stitches are through a lacey material.

Fingerless Lace Gloves
I received this item "extremely" fast and it was exactly as adverised. Time period correct, with all the proper materials used for the era in which they were used. These were given as a gift to a young lady who was attending a Southern Bell Academy and were more than welcomed as part of her wardrobe by the directors. Very pleased with the "price", which was utterly outstanding! Completely staisfied with this company and its products in every way.

White fingerless "garden party"n gloves
I was invited to my daughter's recent college Graduation party, which she held in a beautiful outdoor garden. Her invitation indicated "fancy garden party attire". I already had a beautiful lacy skirt and blouse and just the right hat, but wanted something to kind of stand out. I found your site just by happenstance and absolutely love it. Had I had enough time, I would have ordered a pair of boots, but I fell in love with the white lace fingerless gloves. I was quite pleased when they arrived. They are exactly as pictured and fit well on my largish hands without ripping. I got scads of compliments on them and referred all to your site! Thanks for helping to make my outfit the "hit" of the party! I'd be happy to send you a picture of my ensemble if you'd like!

Not the best
These gloves have lines running through the lace that look like black seams that always seem to be crooked. I also wish I had looked for a pair that had a lace ruffle around the wrist. Because they are not made of natural fiber they make my hands very hot, despite the open weave. I will keep them, but have not been wearing them in the very warm weather we have been having.

pourly made
These gloves are really only made for one use. But you must not pick anything up with them that has rough edges. These gloves will catch on the smallest thing. They unraveled at the cuff and the finger tips. They tore at the base of the third finger on both gloves. They are flimsy and NOT ONE SIZE FITS ALL. They need to be made with stronger materials and made in sizes. I wore them once and could not wear them again. I tried to repair them but that was useless. Not worth the money!.

These gloves fit beautifully and are so very feminine. I love wearing them to our "teas" that we hold, plus, they make me feel very old world, indeed. I am not in to the gothic look, and they are beautiful with a black dress and hat. So glad I found them.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I love these gloves! I was a little concerned at first that they would be too small, because the hands looked very tiny! But they stretched to fit my medium-sized hands perfectly. I love the buttons, which of course are not real (can you imagine buttoning all of those buttons?!) but they add such style. My only complaint, if it could be considered such, is that the satin is, of course, slippery, and I sometimes have trouble picking things up. But I think that mostly has to do with not being used to wearing gloves at all! I am thrilled with these gloves, and they are the perfect finishing touch to my outfit.

These delightful gloves are indeed absolutely fantastic. Easy to wear, not too warm, satin and excellent to the touch, very elegant and classy. Can be worn for steampunk, (more-or-less) authentic period clothing, or with anything else you want. People kept asking me where I purchased them. Excellent product!

Pop goes the weasel
I purchased these gloves because they had the extra button detail. Unfortunately the faux buttons started popping off as soon as I slipped them on. As there is no shank to the button, there is no way that I can sew the missing pieces back on. I will probably pop the rest of the faux buttons off and replace them with shank buttons. The gloves otherwise fit well.
