Vintage Git-Um Dust Cloth Pouch with Indian Motif - Unusual Old Automotive Accessory
This is old Git-Um Dust Cloth is different because it is not in the often seen tin but rather it is in a highly graphic pouch. The pouch appears to be made of a paper material which has a sewn edge and a snap closure. The inside has a plastic or cellophane lining. The flap side has a beautiful line drawing with native American Indians. The central character appears to be a woman with a cradleboard on horseback. There are other horseback riders in the scene as well as a decorated tepee. The drawing appears to be signed; Philips. Under the flap are directions for using the chemically treated dust cloth which was made by The Auto Supplies Manufacturing Co. of Denver, Colorado. The back side of the envelope has a couple of graphics showing that the cloth could be used no only on cars but also on furniture and other surfaces. The cloth is still inside and although the original cellophane bag is torn, it appears that the cloths has never been removed or used. I believe this is from the 1940’s.
The pouch measures about 5” by 7 ¾” and is in fairly nice condition with age wear issues. It has some crease and wrinkle wear and a few small crease tears. The flap side apparently had a price, probably in grease pencil, which has been rub leaving a stain like a black cloud near the top left side. The snap works and the seams are good. Some of the inside cellophane lining is torn as is the wrapping around the cloth as previously mentioned. I do not know the size of the cloth since I am not going to be the one to take it out of the bag but it has several folds and appears to be sizable.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
