This treen bell-shaped glove powderer has a lower compartment to hold the powder and a slender handle which screws off to reveal its original powder inside! The two decals have partially worn away but one reads 'Like old friends, they wear well'. Unfortunately it is not possible to easily read the maker’s mark but it appears to be ‘Meyers Make’ who is known to have made gloves. The narrow section has four perforations at the end and this would be used for reaching the tip of the inside of the glove fingers so that powder could be accurately positioned. As these gloves were very form-fitting, powdering of the gloves would have been a necessity and every “lady” wore gloves and would need an aid such as this. It is in excellent condition with some loss to the decals. This would be a lovely addition to a collection of fashion accessories, especially to those interested in early gloves. 6 ins (16cm) x 2.75 ins (7cm). Weight 76 grams. This item appears in my book, “Antique Boxes, Inside and Out” on page 401. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $28.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
