A pair of brown leather and pink ribbon shoes dating to 1805 - 1810
These shoes are delightful in their design, with small half-wedge heels and threaded pink ribbon to the front The soles are leather.
This pair has been well-loved and well-worn. Nevertheless, they are still pretty and retain the original features.
The general construction and general look is good. There is wear to the ribbon edging to one shoe, there is only one ribbon tie to each shoe, with part of the second tie. The lining is linen and fine leather.
There is a good makers label in both shoes, with a retailer's name located in Bedford Square London. The little heels are sweet and all is well hand stitched.
The shoes measure 9" in length.
