Knitted and embroidered silk stockings
European, ca. 1880

A pair of blue-and-black stockings, the leg knitted in stockinette in pale turquoise blue, knitted to the black foot and shin, with embroidery in silk at the ankles in a stylized floral pattern.

Similar embroidered stockings can be seen in Edouard Manet's Nana (1877, Kunsthalle Hamburg) and Felicien Rops' Dans les coulisses (Behind the Scenes, 1878, private collection).
