1830's Pink Shoes!






From the seller:

A magnificent pair of 1820’s deep pink rose satin straight shoes that are fresh from the Pederson estate in Orange, MA.. The shoes are French made and have the French words for left and right hand written inside lining. The front openings are trimmed with a tiny darker pink silk bow and the openings are bound with darker pink silk. The shoes are lined with linen and kid leather. They are in excellent and sturdy condition. There is a tiny bit of wear to the back heels and on one side of one shoe. This age flaw is very minor. Length 9 ½ inches Width 2 ½ inches. A rare color to add to a shoe collection.

From Me:

1830's shoes at the V&A for comparison.
