AN EXCEPTIONAL AND RARE PAIR OF EMERALD GREEN SILK SHOES. ENGLISH 1810-1820

These beautiful shoes are in a wonderful and unusual colour. Emerald green is seldom found, and this pair must have been teamed with a gown of the same colour. There is a name inside which has nearly worn away, so cannot be read with ease.

They have bows to the front and leather soles. Inside is kid and cotton for the lining. The shoes are of course all hand stitched.

The condition is excellent. Measurements: 9" in length.

Price: USD $850.- RESERVED
