antique - PALMETTO CUFF GUARDS

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Most popularly seen from the earlier1800s through the 1870s, the wearing of these hand woven shirt cuff protectors was, in their time, nearly synonymous with clerking and bookkeeping with service pressed into all manner of continual activity where a reasonably well dressed gentleman was charged with repetitive writing or the handling of material before a desk or table. In their prime many a pair of these cuffs saw use at the gambling table as a well got up dandy protected the cuffs of his best shirt from wear. Seldom seen today as most were used up and cast aside in the period, this pair remain in excellent original condition and are sure to please the most discriminating antique collector. Measuring just under 7 inches in length and 2 at the wrist flaring to approximately 4 inches in diameter, these period cuff guards will set in well in any writing instrument, country store of gambling grouping. A scarce piece of Americana seldom surviving, this is the only pair of such cuffs we have seen outside of museum collections in over fifty years of paying attention to such treasures. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :
