This is a very neat old sock stretcher/dryer. Antique, this is what used to be used back in the day to dry or stretch socks. Great for any antique home or farmhouse. This piece makes great wall decor. It is 22 long and 4 3/4" wide. Great for a laundry room! It is wooden. It is marked on the top, Pearson & Sons Co. and a size 6, I believe, it could be a size 9. From the toe to the heel it is 9 1/2" long.
