Antique 19th century French wooden glove mold made from fruitwood. This hand is so well made and designed it looks like a piece of sculpture. Measures 19 and one half inches high. The thumb moves back and forth. Purchased in France many years ago.
Beautiful! More hand featuring brooches. Victorian Carved Ivory Figa Hand on etsy, the black one with a tennis racket? (quite unusual) from eBay.
