Childrens vintage nylon socks BAN-LON Viyella PINK 1950s girl women SHOP SOILED


One pair of vintage 1950s ribbed ankle length school-type socks.
Pink colour.
Patterned ankles.
Absorbent stretch Nylon (brand name Ban-Lon)
Made by Viyella.
The socks are marked with Viyella's trademark slogan:
"Day and Night Wear"

Made in England in the 1950s.
They were unsold shop stock from the 1950s, and have been in storage at the shop ever since.

Size
These socks are marked with SOCK size 8" to 8 1/2" - this is based on foot length (in inches), and is NOT the same as shoe size.
  • Sock size 8 1/2"...............UK shoe size 2 1/2 to 3 (small adult)
  • Sock size 8"......................UK shoe size 1 to 2 (older children)
Please remember that these are very old socks, and they are not as stretchy as modern ones.

Condition
Unused, but SHOP SOILED.
The socks are obviously very old, and have been in storage for over half a century.
They are in good condition, though the colour has faded a little over the years, as shown, particularly round the ankles.
Most of them still have the original shop sticker (Lastex Yarn) attached from the 1950s.
Some of the socks have some small marks from storage.
The socks will need to be hand-washed before use.
Please see the photographs.
