IMPERFECT ankle socks Vintage 1950s UNUSED short school VIYELLA Girl boy adult


One pair of vintage 1950s ribbed ankle length school-type socks.
They are IMPERFECT, FACTORY SECONDS, with minor manufacturing flaws.
The colour is a creamy "off-white".
Plain ribbed pattern, suitable for either sex.
Wool/cotton mixture with Lastex.
Made by Viyella.
The socks are marked with Viyella's 1950s slogan:
If it shrinks, We replace.
And with their older trademark:
"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.

Condition
These socks are IMPERFECT factory seconds.
They have minor manufacturing flaws.
They are all stamped SECONDS on the toe, as you can see.
They are unused, and still have the original shop price tags attached from the 1950s.
These have been stapled to the tops of the socks with metal staples.
The staples have rusted, and will need to be carefully removed. They may leave small rust spots behind.
The socks are obviously very old, and have been in storage for over half a century.
They will need to be hand-washed before use.
Please see the photographs.
