Under pressure

JULY 2022

This charming and unusual boxwood glove powderer was found in John Gilbert’s antique shop in Robin Hood’s Bay near Whitby. Whilst on the face of it it appears quite ordinary further inspection reveals an unusual base. The base has a thin convex metal plate in it which, when pushed in increases the pressure in the powder compartment which then ‘puffs out’  a small amount of powder through the nozzle
