Braids and Elastic
Vintage 1960s rayon elastic Black quarter-inch Yellow Crescent Old Haberdashery
Vintage black elastic.
1/4 inch wide (6 mm approx).
Yellow Crescent brand.
The weight is 160g including the card.
Made in England.
This elastic is unsold shop stock, on its original card.
The length is printed in yards as well as metres, so presumably it was made in the 1960s.
The original hand-written price on the card has been covered with a sticker showing the "new decimal" price (£0.05), presumably added in 1971.
This is an opened pack of elastic. It is unsold shop stock, and is partly used - there are at least 4 loose ends, so it is not all in one length.
It is probably around half a century old, and is sold purely for historical interest.
Although it seems to be in good condition, there are a few small marks (possibly from the pin which has been used to secure the loose end?).
I don't suppose it would last very long in normal use, and I certainly wouldn't recommend boiling it!
I have not measured how much elastic is left on the card.
The pack originally held 36 yards, so obviously it is less than that.
