Victorian Treen Glove-Powder Dispenser.
Antique turned wood little Treen powder dispenser - mid to late 1800s. Ladies (and gentlemen) would shake a small amount of powder inside their gloves, which made pulling on the gloves easier to achieve. Small size and screw-top meant it could be carried in a purse or reticule. It has a double-screw top - one part opens the bottom container for filling, and the top-most one has the little pointed end for placing in your gloves. Measurements: 6.3 cm high and 2.4 cm diameter at its widest point. Very good condition, just two tiny blemishes on the wood. No cracks or splits.
Shipping: NZ: $10.50. Australia: $12.00. Rest of World: $19.50.
