Clocked silk stockings. Thigh high, One Size fits most. Available in 3 colors. These have a beautiful clocking pattern on both sides of each ankle. "Lace clocks" were a result of various attempts by hosiers in the 1760s to create an openwork fabric, which led to lace clocks, then to machine-made lace. Lace had for centuries been made only by hand. A form of lace was produced on a stocking frame around 1769. This style was worn throughout the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. The cream colored stockings are dyeable.
