Description

Until Frederick M. Vogel invented the Electrically Heated Hosiery Form, stockings were dried in a warming chamber. This device, which Vogel patented in 1912, would dispense with the bulky chamber and replace it instead with rows of electrically-warmed aluminum stocking forms, which would heat the garments, drying and re-shaping them perfectly.

This piece stands as a relic of the early industrial period, and serves as an interesting conversation starter. We've mounted it on an iron pipe flange, making it ready for display right out of the box.

Condition notes: Excellent vintage condition. The few scratches in the aluminum are commensurate with age and only add to the character of the piece.
