These walnut and cast iron ice skates are a great 19th century pair from the period 1850-1870. These skates are in very good condition except for the leather strapping which is always missing or broken but in general these are a nice set of skates. According to high end antique sales and auction data of the last three years these skates would have a market value in the range of 45.00-60.00 (USD) today. These are not rare but hard to find and are fun antiques for the enthusiast of the 19th century. All my best, Dori
