Late Victorian Shoes!

From the seller:

Inventory no: shoe 328

Stunning 1890 ,beautiful hand beaded evening wedding shoes.

Mrs. Charles Gram worn these on her wedding in 1890.

She bought these in Paris ,France

Her "visit" card came with the shoes with the date information.

I am sure that the original color was a wonderful light

green,as well as the satin bow and of course the marcasite

cut steel beads were bright and shiny.

A short "Louie" heel finishes off the wonderful piece of

fashion history,

The edging of the shoes used to be silver as well.

The interior is soft kid skin leather.
