A gorgeous pair of black, striped cotton stockings circa late 19th to early 20th century. If you're a stocking expert perhaps you can get a bit closer to an exact date!
I was able to find some very similar styles in an 1882 catalog, see photos.
On one heel is a printed four digit number that is a bit faded. These are sturdy and would certainly be wearable with care.
+++ Measurements +++
8.5" heel to toe with approx 1.5" of comfortable stretch
11.5" upper thigh circumference with approx 3.5-4" of comfortable additional stretch.
+++ Condition +++
Lovely condition with really no noticeable flaws I can find. A bit dusty perhaps but free of odors and appear to never have been worn.
+++ Please read +++
