*VINTAGE* U.S. Royal Non-Slip Latex Household Gloves *VINTAGE*

Post by Rubrglvlvr » Fri May 15, 2020 6:19 pm

I snagged these on ebay last week, they arrived yesterday. Probably the oldest pair of household gloves I've ever had. I estimate 1940s or 1950s vintage. They have an "abrasive" texture on the palm and fingers and are unlined. Size medium. Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to try them on with out damaging them in their current condition. They are stuck together at the cuffs and have some mold on them. I think I might try to soak them in BeGloss latex wash and see if that rejuvenates them. They may just end up being tucked away in a dark, cool spot to preserve them. A neat piece of rubber glove history either way.
