A few years ago when I “discovered” glove rings, I went a little overboard and collected several of them to go along with some vintage gloves I have, and sometimes wear.
I actually use one of the glove rings occasionally and they work just like they are supposed to.
They are also handy to suspend a lady’s handkerchief just inside your purse so it’s handy. (I also like vintage hankies).
Another good use is to clip a pretty scarf to your purse handle.
I have 2 glove rings in their original boxes from Abon Mfg. Co. New York.
The boxes even have the patent number 2487339. I looked that up years ago and made a note to myself that the patent was issued in 1949 and that the glove rings were sold in the 1950s.
Women wore gloves frequently in the 1950; that went right along with wearing a hat or bandana over your head when you left the house.
I recall, as a little girl, having white crocheted/net gloves to wear to Sunday School and church, to funerals, or on special holidays.
We were certainly not casually dressed, ever!!
I could have used a glove ring back then to make keeping up with gloves at least a little interesting and stylish!
Thanks for looking- I welcome all comments and information.
