Child’s Vintage Silk Sock Illustration

Last Updated on

Today I have a child’s vintage silk sock illustration that I found in a publication called Florence Home Needlework on the Internet Archive website.

The book is by the Nonotuck Silk Company which was later renamed the Corticelli Company and the publication date was 1895.

This is the image from the website:

There was also an advert for Florence crochet and darning silk:

Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics, when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied.
