1896 Ritter Road Skates


Ritter skates are very well constructed. Each skate carries Ritter’s patent stamp. This pair is in excellent original condition and ready to use. The wooden leg supports (described as ‘hinged struts’ in Ritter adverts) are in good original condition, as are the straps and buckles. The Edwardian ladies boots, made by J Collinson & Co of Liverpool, are a narrow size and are excellent too. I keep them in shape with a pair of wooden boot trees. It’s rare to see the brake handles fitted; this beautiful pair of Ritter Road Skates is the nicest set I’ve owned.
