This is an original Bear Brand Hosiery Box from the Bear Brand Hosiery Co. in Chicago. It is presented in a stylish custom shadow box frame by Sonoma Nesting Company, making it a piece of unique advertising ephemera wall art. The frame is waxed pine with black outer and recessed red accent inside and measures 16 1/8 wide, 6 ¼ tall and is 1 ¼ deep and has a wire hanger on reverse.
The Bear Brand Hosiery Company (also known as the Paramount Knitting Company) was established in Chicago in the 1890's. We believe this box is Circa 1930’s. This box shows vintage wear and some spotting – all added character.
