Unusual pair of English industrial ceramic glove moulds. Great for display!



Item Ref



Wonderful vintage 1930's pair of smooth glazed ceramic or porcelain white glove moulds or forms. Made in England by the A.G. Hackney company, they were used to make longer length latex or rubber gloves, by dipping them into the mixture and waiting for the glove to cool.
Of an unusual size, suitable for the manufacture of smaller gloves, this is an original pair. They are much more often found as single moulds.
They bear impressed numbers as well as the glazed manufacturers marks, and the original iron mounting brackets.
Today they make great talking points for display of jewellery or stems of flowers. Mounted horizontally on a wall, they can make a nice guest towel or tie holder. They can also be mounted on a wood or metal base to stand vertically and used to hold photos or menus, or to be a quirky display on their own. They can even be painted. The options are endless, and they will be equally at home in either a home or retail setting.
Size-13 inches long by 4 inches wide by 2.5 inches deep.
A wonderful and unusual vintage pair of "hands," in very good condition.
