Bustle Era Shoes

From the seller:

Unusual pair of fancy Victorian ladies shoes hand embroidered and beaded black velvet over leather with small heels

They measure 9 1/2" long, 2 1/2" wide and the heels are 7/8" tall

They lace up with brass eyelets.

Inside is leather and canvas lined. The canvas is in the toe area

Photos show the condition quite well. Velvet is worn around the toe edge and along the sides. The shoe itself is quite strong and could actually be worn.

Estate found here in Maine
