Antique Onyx Hosiery Ads

Deanna sent me these scans of advertisements for Lord & Taylor “ONYX” Hosiery found in The Philistine: A Periodical of Protest. They may not contain spectacular illustrations or images; but the verbiage is fabulous! Like the boast that these stockings “will make your vacation time double enjoyable” — or this:

There is so much that is little,
So little that is big.

The Big Things in life are notable for their rarity, and be they Men or Matter their prominence is marked.

One of the real Big Things is the “ONYX” Reputation — all Women unite in its praise, and are delighted with it’s fine Quality and endurance.
