If you are reading this, it is available and will only communicate through CL email.Was able to decipher the one fairly legible label and also found more info on worthpoint and ebay (advertising flyer sold from 1934 with info and pics). RARE antique "GREEN MOUNTAIN SNOWSHOE, Guaranteed Not to Sag, MADE BY W. H. KETCHUM Gaysville, Vt.". Wood and rawhide; look like original bindings. 45" x 11 3/4", have small sized names written on each.

According to an ebay seller now seen on Worthpoint: "W. H. Ketchum began making snowshoes in Gaysville Vermont in 1925. His snowshoes were all made by hand. There is a pair of his snowshoes on exhibit at the Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middleburry. The Town of Stockbridge includes the village of Gaysville in Windsor County. A large portion of Gaysville was destroyed during the flood of 1927. Along with it much of the “snow-shoe man’s inventory.". Believe these were made in the thirties (Included pics of original advertising flyer and letter once listed on ebay). Owned for MANY decades, straight from the garage. Great for cabin wall, lodge style decor, hang over fireplace, etc. or collector-nice piece of history..
