This pair of toddlers shoes is utterly delightful and very rare. They are English and date to about 1815.
The shoes are in ruby red quilted silk with front fastening with two glass buttons. The soles are leather and they are beautifully lined.
Small childrens shoes such as this are very rare, and this pair seem to have hardly been worn. They are in excellent condition.
Truly gorgeous and very collectible. The shoes measure approximately 4 3/4" in length.- The little cut steel buckles are a delight.
