Mismatched Pair of Shoes from the Romatic Era

From the seller:

Antique c 1830’s Mismatched Pair of Single Ladies Shoes for Study

This auction is for two single unmatching shoes, one in a blue silk, the other in a butter brown kid leather, both c 1830’s, both trimmed in bows atop the vamp. The silk has started to pull away from the side, leather has minor age scuffing. The blue measures 9 inches in length, the brown 9 ½ inches.

From Me:

The blue one is actually 1840's. It has a left last rather than a straight last.
