Offered is a charming old store box advertising Bear Brand Hosiery. It once held three pair of black silk hose, size 10, but only one pair remains in the box. The box has great graphics and advertises the hose; it measures 9 3/4 by 6 1/2 by 1 inch. There is no date but I could date the pieces to the 30's or 40's, perhaps earlier. The hose have the original tags and labels and look to be in very good condition. The box shows some wear with some scuffs to the black background and wear around the edges; the original paper tab on one side has been broken. This charming advertising collectible would be so cute in a country store display or shown with other vintage clothes..
