What's It Wednesday #91
Ok so this week's post is not about "boxing gloves" at all. Instead, it's about glove boxes. Not the one in your car, aka, glove compartment (for those of us who remember it being called that), but the one perhaps on a lady's vanity.
I have just chosen a new antique item to focus on and decided to bring you all along. Usually I share my collections during the middle or ending of my collecting.
No not this time. This is a brand new, fresh out of my head,
obsession...I mean collection.
As the kids say, "What had happened was..." I was sorting through my mother's, grand-mother's and great-grandmother's gloves a few weeks ago and was wondering what could I store them in. These sorority girls had beautiful gloves for all occasions.
Then it hit me, like most of my compulsive collections, well "duh" I can display them in antique and vintage glove boxes. So of course I started scouring the antique shops locally and online. I wanted the first one to be special and of course Victorian. Y'all know I have a weakness for all things Victorian.
There she was, calling my name. I loved how "Gloves" was embossed on the top of this very delicate box. I couldn't decide which pair of gloves to store in the first of many glove boxes to come.
So now I am looking for glove box number two, three four... What do you think? Wooden, celluloid, ormolu... I just glove them all. In fact, I am smitten.
