SUPERB PAIR OF CREAM SILK SHOES WITH ORIGINAL RIBBONS AND DATED - 1830

This a unique pair of early 19thc silk wedding shoes with original ties, and possibly only worn once. The lining of the shoes is half linen and half kid leather and there is a Paris manufacturers label "Melnotte", but they were retailed in Regent Street, London. So an English wedding.
The full name of the bride is written on one shoe, and her initials on the other.
On each sole is written "Wedding shoes, February 23rd 1830, so these shoes were possibly made in the previous year - 1829.

The condition is excellent without wear or marks.

Measurements: 9" in length and 2" wide across the toes.

Price: SOLD
