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.
