My understanding on white gloves and butlers is quite different, and ties in with Mr Rick Fink’s opinion. Having spoken years ago to my father, about white gloves, he had started as a footman, spent time as a batman in the army, and later became a butler, this is another viewpoint.
Only a few household staff wore white gloves, a footman was one of them.

Dear Josephine, White gloves from the local supermarket a huge help in saving hands, including under gardening gloves, odd jobs etc! Best regards, Robyn
