Humming Bird Full Fashioned Hosiery

Did you know that this product existed? Who could resist a tagline like "The Smartness of Youth... The Splendor of Royalty"? (Click on the image to see a larger version.)



Davenport Hosiery Mills in Chattanooga, Tenn., made Humming Bird hosiery, and the company made the first nylon hose in 1939.

Hi Amy ... do you have access to or know the location of any Davenport Hosiery Mills display models made in the form of centaurettes authorized by the Walt Disney Company (1940).

Thanks, Dennis

Hi! I have an old Humming Bird scarf that belonged to my grandmother and I would like to find out how old it is. The box is dark green top with a black and gold humming Bird logo. The side of the box reads "202x / 3Thd. / 8 1/2 / Polka". Does anyone happen to know how old it might be or know where I could find out?
