Ice skates

Collections items are not for sale. A photo reproduction can be purchased.

Description Steel blade ice skates with wood soles, brass upper support plates, and leather strap uppers with black-painted steel buckles. The buckles rely on tension to secure them rather than on a tongue or prong, so there are no holes in the leather straps. These skates were for use with a separate pair of shoes or boots. A steel spike inside each heel supports and stabilizes the heel in the skate. Some of the straps have been replaced.
