Deeply Problematic Serve Well Hosiery Box (Poignantly Filled with Bingo Game, as Found)

Regular price $45.00

This one. So loaded, one could write a thesis on it. A Serve Well Hosiery box, c. 1940s or so I believe, implying all sorts of possibilities for "serving well." Once it contained size 9 Ginger Brown stockings, but was found with Bingo cards and numbers inside, including some make do number substitutions written on cardboard--representing a presumably well earned escape from serving well! And it does not seem very far fetched to me to imagine the wearer of the ginger brown stockings was not Caucasian, lending some other layers to how one might read it. And, of course, given the state of restrictions on women's freedoms in this country at the moment, it seems quite poignant once again.   

6 3/4 x 9 3/4 x 1 5/8 and in good condition, as found.
