These rare, exquisite tiny 3 pair of antique Chinese embroidered silk bound foot lotus slipper shoes probably date to early to mid 19th Century. These lotus slippers were made for, and worn by women for centuries in China, so it is difficult for me to date them exactly - they might be earlier, and I could be wrong. These extraordinary, very fine little silk shoes are hand-stitched from metallic threads, and each slipper (to both sides) has beautiful floral designs, and are also decorated with tiny beads/sequins. You will see that the bottom parts of the shoes have a purple fabric covering with backs of heels made from chintz cotton fabric, with two supporting loops either side. The slippers measure just 3" in length by approximately 3.5" in height. These are antique, handmade textile shoes, so inevitably there are a few imperfections, so p. Lease take time to view all of the images as these will be the most helpful part of the item description and condition report, but please do read my written condition report too.
