Place of Origin

Maker O.C. Hansen Manufacturing Co.

Maker Details Brothers John E. and Oscar C. Hansen opened the Cream City Hat Company in 1871 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, selling hats and furs. The brothers went their separate ways in 1890 as John opened Hansenís Empire Fur Factory. Oscar kept the hat business and added gloves to his companyís products. In 1901 he incorporated under the name of O.C. Hansen Manufacturing Company, which was shortened to Hansen Glove Corporation in 1930. Hansen gloves were made of horsehide or pigskin leather. They were guaranteed not to shrink, harden, creak, or peel. They were produced in hundreds of styles and colors for automobilists, cyclists, hunters, farmers, miners, ironworkers, etc. "Built like a hand" was Hansen's slogan. O.C. Hansen MFG. CO. was located at 291 Milwaukee Ave. Milwaukee Wis.

Summary Poor

Assessor Cassie Coffey

Notes Inside of leather gloves is deteriorating moderately. The outsides of the gloves have scraps and cracks in the leather also (however less so than the inside). Buckles and straps are still present on the gloves, but one of the buckles is detached.
