c1835-45 Childs shoes
Arent these just the sweetest lil shoes!! Made of forrest green kid leather, with cutouts backed with seafoam green silk and contrasting stitching, together with gathered silk trim on the throats. Sized for a 3-4 year old, they are in remarkable condition. Actually, I have not ever seen a pair of slippers with silk backed cutouts like these, in a childs size, other than my own here. Many hours were spent by the cobbler making these for some special, very wealthy child. One can only spend a day dreaming of what special occasions these were worn to, and what the little angel was wearing to go with them!
I LOVE shoes

Oh Rachael! Are these at your museum? I'd want to hold and caress then every time I walked by.
