Never mind the width feel the quality


This interesting pair of Pinkham gloves turned up recently in Cambridge. What is so interesting is the cream card label attached to the cuff of the right hand glove. This pair of gloves is a slaesman's sample and would have been part of a Pinkham Gloves travelling salesman's samples which would be used to show potential buyers and hopefully result in a large order. They would and have never been sold by a retailer. Another story for The Romance of Gloves; how did they arrive in Cambridge? how did they become separated from all the other samples that would have been with them.... and many many more questions.
