M167M 2Lovely c 1870-80 Silver Kid evening shoes

Lovely small pair of c.1870-80 Silver Opera or Evening Shoes.

Unusually colored, dyed and richly decorated shoes were always more sought after by wealthy women than the single colors and plain shoes or boots.

These exquisite ladies´shoes are attractively made of fine silver kid leather with silver metallic thread rosettes on the vamps. The shoes are lined in tan leather and cotton twill at the toes (there are rests of blue silk that should have covered the cotton twill), and they have 1" wooden stacked heels. Slightly crooked soles of brown leather.

Condition: Good! The shoes are strong and clean. No holes, rips or stains. Leather is still in good condition although shows evident wear.

Measurements: Inside toe to heel 8 1/4"; Width: 2 1/4".
