SAFE STORAGE FOR FURS, RUGS AND DRAPERIES
Before you buy an "Unknown" Clove
Stop Think of more than the price
ASK. yourself if it will give you the service you should
etlL have from a silk glove. Will it fit easily and grace
fully? Will it wash and keep its silkiness and shape?
Will it wear? Has it style and character?
Millions of women have found that the only gloves
that will fill these requirements are Kayser Silk Gloves.
They know that a bargain counter glove is not an
economy. They have found from experience that no
glove is as sure and as satisfactory as the glove which has
the name Kayser in the hem.
This year of all years
This year the scarcity of kid and chamois gloves makes
silk gloves more popular than ever. You must be on
your guard to make sure you are securing full value. The
only sure way to protect yourself against inferior, badly
shaped, skimped 4 unknown" gloves is to insist on seeing
the name Kayser.
This year, Kayser Silk Gloves are the same high
standard that has made them the most popular silk glove
for thirty-five years. They are made by tne same skilled
workers of the same highest quality, pure, durable silk.
Look for the name in the hem
All stores arc carrying them. Your dealer recom
mends them to you. Purchase your gloves for Spring
now. Look for the name Kayser in the hem.
