Holy, angelic dogs! Very sexy and cute! These used to be my grandmother's and I know that they were never worn. They do have somewhat of a soapy smell (she used to put soaps in her delicates drawer to keep things fresh). The stockings alone would be the ultimate accessory to any vintage or otherwise outfit! Cuban-heeled pantyhose are very rare these days, but last forever.They don't have much stretch since there's no lycra or spandex in them, but they feel amazing!

From around the 1940s, this thick, sturdy, vintage Artcraft box holds a beautiful pair of vintage, unworn, thigh-high black back-seamed 100% silk stockings. The stockings also have a cuban heel, and are back-seamed. If you are not familiar with a cuban heel, it is thicker and provides much more durability in wear. They do require garters to hold them up.

Stockings were not made the same way back then that they are now. As a natural fiber, silk often takes on a "slub" texture that is often a little uneven, but makes for an interesting effect. Some of this slubby texture may look like tiny snags or flaws to you, but is merely the nature of silk hosiery made in the 1940s or earlier.This is what is so exciting about this pair of hosiery, since there's little like it out there anymore.

The box is a peachy pink shade with gold and white dogs. It looks almost as if the gold was hand-painted on. The corners have the tiniest bit of wear.

The top lifts back like a jewelry box might with a paper hinge...so the top does not come off completely. The word "ARTCRAFT" is painted in gold on the top, front, and left and right sides. The inside has the statement: "Stockings of ARTCRAFT elegance" in gold as well.

* Box measures 7.25" by 5" and 1.5" deep

* The stockings fit about a size medium. They will fit between a U.S. size 7 to 8.5 foot. They are much more shapely when laying flat than modern nylons since they have less stretch. Please feel free to ask any other questions you might have. I'm happy to help!
