Victorian glove stretcher
A handy gadget?
During the Victorian period, kid leather gloves were very fashionable. The fingers of the gloves would be so close-fitting, particularly after washing, that the leather of the gloves would need stretching to allow women to actually get their hands in. The stretcher is used by inserting the tip into the fingers of the glove and squeezing the open end.
