BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE BLUE/ GRAY SILK STRAIGHTS 1860 ROSETTE SHOES Im finding it hard to part with these rare beauties, but I must be strict. Gorgeous rare 1860 silk straight soles shoes, with enormous beautiful rosettes with a gold tone metal buckle decoration. The silk is a wonderful shade of the lightest blue/ grey tone. I think the silk is silk faille. They have a petit heel and just make a wonderful display.The lovely blue making them more unusual. Perfect for the collector of antique shoes and for someone wanting a Nordic shabby display in a glass dome or cabinet. The condition is as shown on the photos with the rear sides missing the blue silk. There is also traces of red candle wax on the sole edges maybe from when they were last worn.
Apart from that the fronts are mostly strong with little wear along the edges and they are mostly clean. Just so wonderful and rare. It's quite nice been able to see the construction of the shoe with the visible leather and heel fabric. I can supply more photos if needed.
