Rare Hand Made Antique Ice Skates Forged Iron Blades Large Curl 6 1/2" circa 1850's
These rare handmade Antique Ice Skates, circa 1850's, have forged iron blades with a VERY large curl 6 1/2" (the largest I have had for sale).
They are beautifully proportioned. The wood platforms are tapered in the middle. The screws at the heel are to prevent boot slippage. No makers marks evident.
Approximate Dimensions: Length 11" Height of the curl 6.25".
Condition: As found. See photos. One skate has more wear than the other but they are a pair. One retains the original paint.
