ITEM #41U
COTTON STOCKINGS WITH CLOCKS
(19th c.)

: $165 :
Description: A pair of white cotton stockings with silk clocks sewn onto each side of ankles. Stockings measure 24½" long. The foot is 9½" long. Stockings are seamed up the backs and bottom of foot is a separate attached piece.

Condition: Some light staining from wear (would probably soak out). A mend on toe of each stocking. One stocking has a small ¼" hole in the heel, the other has two small ¼" holes with a mend between, on the heel. Both stockings have damage around the very top that is consistent with being attached to something to hold the stockings up, one stocking having a large hole & mend at the top.

ITEM #25U
CHILD'S 2–PIECE UNDERWEAR SET
(second half 19th c.)

: $75 :
Description: A hand–sewn pair of children's drawer with a separate under–bodice top. The top closes in back with four glass buttons, and has four large bone buttons (one on each side, one in front, and one in back), that button onto the waistband of the drawers. Drawers are 14 inches long from bottom of waistband. Legs of drawers are edged with one inch wide lace. Top measures ten and ½ inches from top of the strap to bottom edge.

Condition: very good.

ITEM #26U
CHILD'S STOCKINGS
(late 19th c.)

: $25 :
Description: A small pair of children's stockings that may be of a wool-cotton mix, as they feel too rough to be of all cotton. A small triangle at the heel and a small circle at the toe are of light beige silk. Stockings measure 9 inches long from bottom of heel to top. Foot is 4 inches long.

Condition: There are several small holes near one toe and each stocking has a horizontal mend across the very top in front. I have to wonder if this wasn't damage from attaching the stockings to another garment at that point, to help keep them up.
