A DELIGHTFUL PAIR OF PINK SILK DANCING BOOTS WITH LACE-UP SIDES. FRENCH 1825-1830

These pretty silk dancing boots are very unusual. I have never seen this colour before. It is a pale soft dusky pink.

There are lace-up sides and an unusual silk fringe around the top. They are lined in fine silk.

These boots would have been worn for a ball, giving far more security to the feet than silk slippers.

The condition is excellent. The soles good. I imagine they were hardly worn.

Measurements: 9" in length.

Price: USD $900.-

Further information, detailed description and condition reports can be supplied on any piece of interest. Just contact me.
