Betrothal Gloves

In Victorian times, the ardent suitor would send a pair of lace gloves to his beloved as a proposal of marriage. The young lady would then demurely signal her acceptance by wearing the gloves to a social engagement or church. Had she been undecided she wore but one, signaling to her gentleman that the wooing should be continued. To each pair of our gloves, we attach a little card that says.... 'If from this glove / You take the letter "G" / Then Glove is Love, / And that I send to thee.' Ladies Irish Crochet Gloves, in white or cream.
