A favorite of ours, this diminutive pin keep measures only 1 3/4" heel to toe and 1 1/2" high at back of shoe. Made of silk and remnants of a money or stock certificate. Padded with cotton batting, it feels sturdy and strong. The shoe is pinned in place as according to its initial design. There is good old French ticking under one side panel of the shoe. On the other side only the certificate and the silk are visible. In very good condition. Ex-Collection Nan Gurley.
