Two woven cuff protectors made from a reed fiber used to protect the cuffs from ink damage in the printing business. Similar to abandoned property from Quong Tuck building. Each is conical with the diameter at one end being slightly smaller than that at the other. The narrower end of each cuff protector is reinforced with four narrow rows of braided fiber. The wider end is reinforced with a single wider row of braided material. The main body of the cuff protectors is a twill weave and is flexible so that it can stretch and spring back into place. B.
