1790's Mules!!!!!

From the seller:

Wonderful and very hard to find Victorian antique leather and tapestry cloth slipper shoes, these are not marked and measure 9 1/4" long from the wall and ball is 3" across, these show some wear from age and use one ruffle across the front of one shoe has come loose (see photos) no breaks or tears.

Buyer to pay shipping, payment must be received within 10 days of auction closure.

From Me:

The last minute bidding on these was INTENSE. However, I didn't win them. :-( These aren't Victorian but are a lovely example of 1790's mules. Aren't they fabulous? The way the trim is done along the top of the shoe is characteristic of the time period.
