Painted Porcelain Glove Molds

I just adore vintage porcelain glove molds. I’ve been rescuing them and selling them for years. My earliest rescue was a defunct glove mold plant down in South Carolina. It was sad to see some of the porcelain molds still attached to the original rusty dipper machine.  They would dip them in a vat of plastic to make latex gloves. For me, it was a piece of American industrialism of a bygone era. Today I’m offering the silver painted glove mold, by Hall China Company Style No 9100. This is older and vintage but has been painted with silver-aluminum drippy glaze paint.  This is unique for two reasons, it will appeal to the salvage shabby lover or the Hall China Collector!

This mold stands 15″ tall and is 5″ across the fingers making it quite the statue for your home! I have the original ones without paint in my shop for $39.95 but this one is on sale!  This painted and shows some slight imperfections  such as runs, drips, or scrapes. It was used a prop it is on sale for $28.00 plus $9.95 shipping in the states.

Root Beer Cap CollectionI’ve been cleaning out my stuido at my home. It has been a year in progress. Life was so hectic this past summer I closed down my studio and my Etsy shop. Imagine the crap that was piled in there just waiting to be cleaned and sorted that I’d found along my travels.

I’m currently unmassing a lot of art supplies in my Etsy shop which I don’t normally sell. I have so many of them I will be 105 and still making art so I figure, why not let someone else have some?  These are great to make pendants, necklaces, earrings, or use in altered artwork. I have so many differnet ones that I will be cleaning out so check into my shop real soon.

VIntage Keys for Making Art Retro Chalet on Etsy

Keys for artists.
Keys, Keys, Keys!

I just added a slew of keys for collecting, coveting, or making art into my RetroChalet Etsy shop.  They were in my studio for years. So many artists use keys in their work, that I thought these keys were better off with someone else. Not only that, but they are cute little collectibles of industrial history and reminders of yesteryear. All these keys seem to be blanks!  I love them all so much, just look!
