Now I know I love and collect a whole bunch of weird stuff that most other people would view as kitsch junk but today's find takes the cake even for me. But they are so beautiful! Ceramic glove moulds. At first I thought they were really old mannequin hands used to display jewellery in shops but they are actually the forms used to dip latex or rubber gloves. I love the indigo printed sizes and manufacturers stamps on them and the rough parts where the bisque shows through. I suppose they are just an extension of my white ceramic phase. Sigh, do you think they will survive the journey in the mail? Have a look here at a collector, apparently I am not alone after all in my love of the peculiar.
