Vintage 1950s socks Royal Coronation child's Queen Elizabeth II Silquesta UNUSED


A pair of children's ankle socks, made in 1953 to celebrate the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second.

These were made for small children - foot size 6 inches (note: this is not the same as shoe size)

Made in Britain by Silquesta.

The socks are a creamy-white colour.

The tops of the socks (the turn-down part) are decorated with a Royal Crown and ER (short for Elizabeth Regina), in a wreath of laurel.

Altogether a charming little bit of social history - and quite unusually with vintage clothing, a garment which can be definitely dated to a particular year.

 

Condition:

New and unused.

They have been in storage in a shop since 1953, and they are still sewn together at the back of the ankle, with a 1950s price tag stapled to one sock.

This price is 1/3 (one shilling and three pence).

The socks have kept their colour well, but there are a few faint marks from storage - and some small spots where the staples have rusted.

Obviously, these socks are 60 years old, and if you DID want to use them, they would have to be hand-washed before use.
