Made in the 1800s for a pampered tot, these adorable shoes have leather soles and vamps, velvet uppers and hand-embroidered buttonholes in a sunflower design. As if that weren't enough, the velvet is decorated with tiny printed polka dots. And please note the exagerrated scalloping up and down the central front closure. How precious! 4 1/4" toe to heel along the sole and 1 3/4" across the sole at the ball of the foot. They extend upward 2 1/4". In lovely condition. The leather is still soft and sturdy, with a rich patina; the velvet is in good condition with some wear to the nap, the lace-hole stitching in very fine condition. The soles have wear as visible in our photos. The shoes are missing their laces. This flaw is reflected in our low price.
