The opera glove has been recognized for well over a century as one of the foremost symbols of feminine elegance and sensuality. The very sight of a kidskin, suede, satin or lame glove embracing the hand and arm of a woman sends a powerful conscious and subconscious signal that the wearer is a woman of style, elegance, passion, power and sexuality. Ever since over-the-elbow gloves were first widely worn by women during the Regency and Napoleonic era at the beginning of the 19th century, and especially since "The Divine Sarah", Sarah Bernhardt, introduced the mousquetaire to America in the 1870s, the opera glove, on the arms of beautiful women, has been reducing male viewers to puddles of mush.
