Primitive Cornhusker Glove
From a farm in Western Pennsylvania, a late 19th- to early 20th-century cornhusking glove made with rough leather and a series of rivets which both hold the glove together and help with the functionality. Although these gloves weren't mass-produced, the design was shared among farmers and similar examples appear in historical collections, including the Ford Agricultural Museum. Heavy-duty in construction and use, this example remains in Very Good condition. The most evident damage is a small puncture in the finger and that one of the buttonholes on the front strap is torn from use, but the strap is still intact.
