Not sure if this is the right category.

I am in possession of my grandfather's boxing gloves from the 1920's. One of them is dry rotted beyond repair, the other is well on it's way. I would like to find a way to preserve the surviving one. I am thinking of a shadow box, but need some way to treat the leather so it does not continue to rot. I have tried saddle soap, but was only flaking more leather. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
