Miniature Child's shoes

Pointed tongues and toes were a feature of adult women's shoes during the 1770s and 80s. I am not sure if these are for a girl or boy.


Red Moroccan glace leather shoes with pointed toes and tongues, all edged in black silk trim and similar ties, leather soles, all hand stitched.

3 3/4 in; 9.5 cm long


The red leather is in very good condition. The black silk has worn. Very slight wear to the soles.
