Although it’s rare that I post any pictures publicly anymore, I’ll still post pictures of vintage stockings and packaging from My personal collection.
I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen a date on a box of stockings before. I don’t think the stockings are that old, probably from the 1950’s would be My guess.
So the ‘gimmick’ with these stockings was that they were “Ever so faintly scented” (perfumed), but it was so faint that I didn’t smell anything. lol Well I couldn’t differentiate between “is this perfume or just musty 60+ year old stocking smell”.
A signature detail of vintage stockings, the welt imprint.
I wore these in My “Lower Leg Appreciation” clip:
The stockings do have a nice, darker outline along the heel and foot reinforcement and a rather unusual “bump/notch” along the side of the heel. Which you can see much better in the clip, of course.
A quick Google image search and there are some neat old advertisements for Northmont stockings to be found.
