1840's Leather Shoes







From the seller:

Description



Wonderful antique early Victorian shoes or slippers, which have been produced from dark olive green leather, trimmed to the top edge with brown leather. The shoes have been lined in tan leather and cream linen, with flat leather soles.



AGE
Mid 19th century, circa 1840/50's.


SIZE
The shoes measure 23cm (9") long, 7cm (2¾") wide and 4cm (1¾") high.


CONDITION
The shoes are in a very good condition for age and delicate nature, with no major damage, although there is wear to the leather. Please refer to the above photographs for details of condition.


From Me:

I'd say early 1840's but a nice pair of everyday shoes either way.
