Mousquetaire (Mus-Ke-Tare'). A style of ladies' kid glove, distinguished by its long loose top and a lengthwise slit at the wrist; so-called from its resemblance to a military glove, or the glove of a musketeer (French mousquetaire). The term was also, in 1850, applied to woman's turn-over collar, made of plain, starched linen.
