A Hanging Container for Gloves
This is a small half-round soft metal container that can be hung on the wall. It is quite pretty in that all the filigree work is in an asphaltum wash that gives the brown color. On the front is an oval shape motif of a basket full of colorful flowers. The top lifts up to expose an interior lined in green silk fabric. Since the space is long and narrow, I immediately thought of storing leather gloves in there. Therefore I would hang this on the wall near the ladies vanity in a bedroom.
