A woman's fine pink silk stocking made on a 52 gauge stocking frame. The heel, toe and English foot are of thicker silk. Marked below welt with 'M' for I & R Morley. It has a handwritten label 'Fine Silk Hose by I & R Morley'. The stains are from tar used to seal the bottle which contained it and a quantity of lace when they were buried under the foundation stone of the Wesleyan Chapel, Mansfield Road, Nottingham. They were recovered when the building was demolished in 1977.
