This is a wonderful vintage store point of sales product display case advertising “Paris Garters”. Paris Garters were used to hold up mens socks, I guess at a time when elastic top socks were yet to be used. The motto at the bottom reads “No Metal Can Touch You”. The piece is made of wood with a glass front and applied decal text. The interior has slats of cardboard onto which the garters would be affixed and displayed. The piece measures 8 1/4” wide by 8 1/4” high by 5 3/8” deep. It weighs 1 lb and 12 oz. It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear or tear. I would think that this piece dates to the 1920s-30s era.
This is a wonderful old advertising piece - great acquisition for the sock or advertising collector!
