1880's Boots!

From the seller:

Ladies high boots dating to the mid 19thc. Museum deaccession. With side buttons, one boot missing all it's buttons, decorative ribbon bows with beaded buttons. With museum stuffing. In as found condition missing buttons, discolorations on the heels.

Measurements: 10" outsole, 2.5" width, 1" heel, 9" high.

From Me:

Here are a couple of other examples of boots like this from the 1880's:

Pattern to make the boots from 1885

This style was popular through the rest of the Victorian period so they might be from the 1890's as well.
