Porcelain glove making form - A.G. Hackney
Regular price £195
A size 7-1/2 porcelain glove making former, with black transfer makers mark for Staffordshire potter A.G. Hackney of Burslem, England.
Made to be dipped in liquid latex to mould rubber gloves, the strong porcelain was able to withstand extreme changes in temperature and most chemicals used in producing and vulcanizing the rubber. Similar examples can be seen in the Stoke-on-Trent potteries museum.
A very sculptural and decorative piece of utilitarian pottery, complete with a bespoke mahogany stand for display.
33.2cm glove length (13-1/16")
41.8cm tall with stand (16-1/2")
Original condition with a small chip and nibble on the back edge of the bottom of the form, with some rusty staining around the base. The turned mahogany stand is made around the original steel rack bracket, which is screwed into the underside of the porcelain.
