This pair of antique boot skates were made in the early 1900's and are still completely functional. Originally these blades would have been fitted with a leather strap which is not available. The blade measures 13 1/2" and the shoe fitting extends. They are stamped on the blade "Halifax Pattern Club Skate" which is the establishment which rented or loaned these skates out to patrons or members. They are also stamped No. 5. A great item to display or addition to any collection.
