Porch Nook's "Object Lessons" is a series of short articles sharing my vintage and antique finds over the years, containing just enough information to make you dangerous at the local flea market. Happy hunting!
Value as of 2/22/2020, $17-$50*. With clarity and warmth, the original owner shared her story of receiving these Italian leather gloves from her Great Aunt when she was 11 years old. It was Christmas, and to this day she remembered the very moment of opening this glove box, beaming with excitement when she put them on, and the smile on her Great Aunt’s face.
Made in Italy, these soft vintage** kids gloves were designed by Hickok who was known for using only the finest leather hides from all over the world. The delicate and colorful embroidered flowers adorning these white leather gloves is a testament to the superb craftsmanship this brand was known for since the early 1900s.
This pair was manufactured during the 1960s, size 7, 8-1/2”L x 3-1/4”W.
*For the sake of transparency, Porch Nook in not an antiquities dealer, nor do we specialize in antiques. However, for many years we've gained experience acquiring and selling old stuff, and hung around a lot of people who also like to acquire and sell old stuff. We gotta tell'ya, they're our kind of people...smart, creative, not shy and will tell you what's what.
