You all know Alphonse by now. He has proven himself an exceptionally helpful house guest. Since things worked out so well with him, I have decided to take on another boarder.
Please meet Percival.
According to the seller, Percival is a vintage unglazed porcelain rubber glove form. I’m imagining some sort of assembly line with hundreds of them hanging from belts and getting dipped in vats of molten rubber. I have no idea if this is at all accurate, but it’s an interesting visual. Don’t spoil it for me if I’m wrong.
I intend to put Percival to work modeling an assortment of frilly fingerless gloves. Why such a manly name for such a lacy task I couldn’t tell you. But it’s clear his name is Percival, so there’s really no arguing.
When he’s not modeling, he’ll be lounging on my bookcase giving a much needed creepy touch to my decor.
