These fabulous shoes are similar to ones found at the Met: http://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/110416 Shoes date from between 1890/1920. Likely made for a costume ball. Shoes have Louis heels, and are embroidered with silk floss onto ivory silk satin. They have a strap that closes with a ceramic shoe button, and ribbon decorations on the vamps. There are no stains, damage or other sign they were worn other than the soles of the shoes. About 9 inches long by 3 inches in width. These would be for display only as they are over 100 years old. Lined in indigo blue cotton twill.
