Opera Gloves and Long Gloves in the Fashions of the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's, Gallery 2

The period between the end of the First World War and the beginning of World War II was something of a fallow one for the opera glove, but they were still being worn - and during the 1940's, the opera glove really came back into style. For the Love of Opera Gloves presents a look at three decades of long-glove fashion.
