1950 - 1959  Gloves & Mitts

Although you will find an occasional split finger being made early in the decade, for the most part gloves are being made with laced fingers. The full one piece leather webs dominate the era. Manufacturers experiment with different lacing devices to anchor the web to the crotch of the glove.
