Date: between 1890 and 1930
Pair of leather, gauntlet-style driving gloves. Driving gloves of this type were worn from around the 1890s to the 1930s. They were meant to keep the hands clean, protect the palms from the material (usually wood or metal) of the steering wheel, and help with gripping the steering wheel. The gauntlet style was meant to cover the area between the hand and the arm that wasn't covered by a driving duster or coat and provide warmth during the colder months.
