A pair of ladies biscuit coloured formal evening wear, stretch nylon Helanca gloves with inseam chainstitch from the 1950's.

The gloves are a three button size with Mousquetaire opening.

Helanca was a pre Lycra stretch yarn developed in Switzerland during the 1950's and the French manufacturer Neyret was famous for gloves made of fabrics made of this yarn. Of special interest is the moiré effect on this particular pair.
