WOMEN’S DRESS SHOES, CIRCA 1850’S-1860’S

$180.00 SOLD
Originally $250.00

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 742-17

A pair of off white satin-silk body ladies dress shoes dating from the mid-19th century. These are in excellent condition considering their age with very delicate construction techniques and materials. This version is of the side-laced type ankle bootie, prevalent during that mid-century period. The pair was no doubt created for a more formal attired occasion (weddings, ballroom dances, etc.) being much too fragile for everyday use about the home or out in the open.

Each side of the lace openings contain 13 hand sewn worked eyelets with what looks to be the original fine silk lace still threaded through the eyelets. The leather soles are more of a slipper type, being completely flat and without heels.  Measuring from heel to toe they are 9” in length and are very narrow in width 2 1/4”. As stated before, the condition is overall excellent, The only issues are, one seam located at the rear has been reinforced with extra stitching and a very, very small hole is present on the nose cap of one shoe. Nice examples for an advanced civilian display.
