Vintage Phantom 1950s Purple Nylon Stockings 2 Pairs Sz 9.5
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
These are two pairs of 1950s purple nylon stockings made in Canada under the “Phantom” brand name by the National Hosiery Mills of Hamilton, Ontario. The Phantom Hosiery plant was opened in 1928, originally to produce silk stockings - the plant was closed in 1957, so these stockings pre-date that date. The box calls this purple colour “Hint-O'-Grape”. Each of these 1950s purple nylon stockings is stamped with “Phantom Sanitized ® Seamfree Micromesh Nylon 400 Needle 15 Denier 9 1/2 Medium”. These 1950s purple nylon stockings are in like-new condition as they are unused - the box has some minor wear and the paper tissue is clean and intact. Fun phantom image of a lady’s face on the box and spiderweb pattern on the tissue paper. Purple stockings of this age are practically never seen - fabulous collectible stockings!
