Gorgeous pair of Balbriggan Irish hosiery from the Victorian era. The hand embroidery pair of knitted cotton stockings may never have been worn. The condition is almost minty. The tan stockings have padded silk embroidery flowers, in a magenta colour, on the lower part of the leg and foot. A cream arrow defining the side of leg and ankle are embroidered on either side of the stockings. Imprinted at the top of each of the stockings is the mark of Balbriggan 1165. Size 9 is imprinted on the toes. Hosiery with the Balbriggan label were made to a very high quality standard, so much so, that Balbriggan stockings were a "must wear" by Queen Victoria.Very rare to find. The decoration is not included.
Measurements: Length of the stockings from top to the toe is 30" long. Toe to heel, the measurement is 9". Length of the embroidery is 7" long x 1-3/4" wide.
