Vintage infant scratch mitts UNUSED 1960s baby mittens ACRILAN white fleece


Fleecy mittens for newborn infants probably made in the 1960s.
Pure white, with yellow wool ties.
Made of Acrilan.
Made in England, probably in the late 1960s, but never used.
These mittens are unsold shop stock, and they still have an old hand-written shop price on the "Acrilan" tag.
 
The prices are marked in "decimal money" - so presumably they were added in the early 1970s.
There are no garment care instructions.
I would suggest hand-washing only.
 
NOTE: These mittens have a wool cord round the wrist. I do not think this complies with modern safety standards.
The mittens are fine for a doll, or for a vintage display, but if you are thinking of using the mittens for a real child, you would need to change the cord for a modern safety fastening.
 
Size:
Actual length of mittens...............4 inches (11 cm)
Actual width of mittens...............2 1/2 inches (6 cm)

Colour:
White, with yellow bow.
 
Condition:
New with tags.
These mittens are unsold shop stock from around the 1960s (before the days when washing instructions were sewn into garments).
They have been properly stored in the shop, and are in beautiful condition.
They still have the original shop label attached, complete with a decimal price of £0.16, which was presumably added in 1971 or thereabouts.
The bottom of the tags has been snipped off, presumably to remove the "old money" price.
Please bear in mind that the mittens are about half a century old, and will need to be hand-washed before use, and treated gently.
