These gloves are fake. In 1991 this Omp glove (Mito 418) used the smaller inverted colors OMP logo.
From 1992 -1993 the logo was like this one but half the size.
This glove is from 1995 so could never have been worn by Senna.

Thank you for your concern. However, we have checked with Jo Ramirez, former F1 McLaren Team Coordinator and friend of Senna, who has confirmed that these gloves are genuine and were indeed worn by the late Ayrton Senna at some Grand Prix races during the year 1991.
We hope they go on to raise as much as possible for the Grand Prix Mechanics Charitable Trust in our charity auction next Monday 25th February.
Best, Motor Sport Magazine
