Actually, they remind me of Claudia Cardinale as Jill McBain in Once Upon A Time In The West. But then, I'm biased towards Sergio Leone and totally missed out on the Madonna craze. And I wrote a paper on that film and the history and clothing behind it in the last year of Grammar School. And the black mitts were part of that research.
I wish I had your mention of the 1873 Harper's Bazaar article back then. That's approximately the time I nailed the film to.

Cyclical indeed! Re freedom of movement - I wonder what trends were being adopted (perhaps crochet?) that required fingers that were freer?
