This is a great decor item. These old ice skates still have the little adjustment handle on each. They are over 100 years old and very unique. I have collected antiques for years and this is the first pair I have found. However, I also live in Florida….They are steel. I didn’t attempt to clean them up or do any kind of work other than wash them. They are quite unique. The blades are 10" long. Great to hang by the fireplace.
