One Glove

When the Mister and I were down in Los Angeles we stayed with his Mom for a couple of days. Most times we stay a box gets brought in from the garage and its usually filled with items from the Misters family. This time amongst the many amazing family photos was this hand knit fingerless glove... from either the early 1900's or late 1800's. It was amongst a collection of handmade paper dolls which were also amazing. I'll share those soon too.

But what do you think this beautiful hand knit glove was used for?
Was it simply a beautiful accessory or do you think there was a specific use or purpose?
