I just can’t get enough of these vintage Native American gloves seen recently at antique fairs. I have never felt anything like the buttery softness of the leather and fur and delight in the pretty beadwork. The combination of artistry and utility produced a remarkable result.

Vintage alpine art and graphics from the recent Brimfield Antique Show.
The first Brimfield Antique Show of the year didn’t feel particularly rich with alpine artifacts – but was great fun nonetheless. I rounded up some of the usual small finds: vintage photos, postcards, magazines.
The score of the day was a late 1930’s brochure for The New Haven Railroad Snow Trains illustrated by famed artist Sascha Maurer. (Maurer is best known for ski posters and credited with creating the Stowe “flying S” logo.) The brochure is in pristine condition with vibrant color and essentially gives me two mini posters – I am thrilled!
See you in September, Brimfield. . .
