Men's Slippers Mid 19th Century

From the seller:

An exceptional pair of man’s antique 1860’s Berlin work slippers. The last name Gorham is hand written inside the slippers. The background color is a vivid orange. The flowers are worked in shades of blue, white, lilac, red and pink and golden shafts of wheat. The slippers are lined with linen and leather. They have a 1 inch heel. The slippers are in excellent condition and appear to have never been worn. Length 12 inches Width 4 inches.

From Me:

I half think these are a decade earlier but there are some details that are throwing me off so I'll go with the 1860's for now.
