Late Victorian Era Stockings
From the seller:
A very pretty pair of embroidered Victorian cotton stockings. The embroidery has a floral pattern in shades of two tone blue and a touch of red. They are stamped on the toes with a number 9. The stockings are in very good condition. There are no holes and just a few small age spots. Length 24 Foot 9 inches.
I think seller meant that the overall length is 24 inches and that the foot part is 9". ;-) Based on the embroidery style, I think these are from the 1880's/1890's but I'm really not sure.
