Limerick gloves

Limerick gloves

Magista soccer cleats magista obra fg in the mid1700s and into the early 1800s were all the rage. They were made from the finest leather magista obra fg only be worn once. There were, of course, lower quality that were sold to the middle class.

Limericks were prized not only for their delicacy, but also because they were smooth inside as well as out, something unknown in a leather glove at the time. They were also said to be wonderful for improving skin quality, and at times they were very popular as a means of skin care, in which case they might be infused with almond oil magista obra fg and spermaceti, and worn at night to help keep ladies’ hands plump, soft, and white.

were originally from Limerick, Ireland, but the manufacture quickly spread into other parts of Ireland and then to England. Even gloves from France might be referred to as ‘Limericks’ if they were fine enough, although magista obra fg there was apparently a bit of patriotic chauvinism where gloves were concerned, and these were looked down upon by some. True Limericks were seen as something of a specialty of Ireland for most, if not all, of the time that they were in fashion.

The manufacture of Limericks was a true cottage industry, and one that employed a good number of workers. It started with higglers who would travel from village to village collecting the skins of unborn animals (called morts if the mother was slaughtered while pregnant, or slinks if stillborn). The skins were tanned and delivered to female sewers; tens of thousands of women were involved in the sewing of gloves, although I do not know what percentage of these specialized in. It was apparently not unheard of for the welltodo to return from trips to Ireland with bags full of walnuts shells (yes, literally), containing Limericks.

Limericks were also known as chickenskin gloves, although chicken skin was prone to have holes in magista soccer cleats it after plucking, and I have been unable to determine if gloves made from actual chicken skin were ever popular. There are rumors of ratskin gloves sold when traditional forms of fine leather were in short supply, but this, too, may be mythical magista obra fg.
