A beautiful pair of antique silk satin wedding shoes with elaborate bows and beadwork decoration. The shoes are a UK size 3.5 and are in good, clean, undamaged condition with just very minor wear and ageing. They still have the original box from R.Cowley & Son of Hull and inside each shoe is printed an endorsement for the retailer from H. The shoe box also contains some poignant history. Two small cards tell us that the bride and groom were Ida Bolderson and Arthur Cuthbert and their marriage took place at St Patrick's Church, Patrington near Hull, on August 20th 1919. There are also some sprigs of lily of the valley from the bride's headdress and a hand-written note with the words. "The end of a perfect day".
The photos can be enlarged for more detail and to assess the condition. I guarantee that these are genuine antique wedding shoes, with history, in the original box. The item "ANTIQUE BEADED BRIDAL / WEDDING / EVENING SHOES 1919 ORIGINAL BOX & HISTORY" is in sale since Friday, March 25, 2016.
