    Hoover & Curtis: Spectacular Jugate Tire Cover. Measuring 28" in diameter and very popular during the 1924-32 era when many automobiles had rear-mounted spare tires. Although a number of different designs were made, this one and its Roosevelt mate seem to be the only jugates. These covers are formed of two layers. The underlying layer is heavy canvas and this is covered by leather, or a leather-like material on which the design was printed. Not surprisingly a large majority of political tire covers are in rough condition owing to the way they were used - outdoors and exposed to the elements. This Hoover-Curtis example shows some minor surface cracking, with several tiny pieces of the black surface missing, (not affecting the portraits or slogans), but overall this one is in excellent condition, as the photo clearly shows. A dramatic display piece!
