Antique Skirt Lifter Woman's Bejeweled Hand Design Patent B.m.s. Victorian For Sale

Antique Skirt Lifter Woman's Bejeweled Hand Design Patent B.m.s. Victorian

It's old, it's odd. It's a skirt lifter, also known as a skirt elevator. It'sa sort of clip meant to lift long skirts on demand. A pair of disks are on either end of a springy rod -- the smaller fits into the larger, and one or both probably once were covered with a cushion or fabric. The ends can be squished together and held in place (holding the skirt) by means of an elongated spring which, in turn, is locked in place by rotating a piece in the form of a woman's hand. That hand isadorned with ring, bracelet and fancy cuff.

That sounds complicated, but works easily in practice.

I guess the material is brass; at least, it's brass colored. The sliding piece is marked PATENT on one side and B.M.S. (possibly B.H.S.) on the other. It's 4” long, 1 1/2” wide (when closed, including the hand) and about 1” deep (the diameter of the larger disk).

It shows minor signs of its age (which must be considerable), but remains undamaged in any way I can detect and in perfect working order. Lift away.

Items are very carefully packed and shipped promptly on receipt. Multiple purchases are combined to minimize your shipping costs. Items over $25 are automatically insured. Sales tax applies only to Illinois buyers without retailer's tax numbers. International buyers, please write in advance for a shipping quote and expect honest customs reporting. Satisfaction guaranteed.
