Welcome to Antiques and Moore! This listing is for an gorgeous pair of 19th Century embroidered red silk Asian bound feet shoes/slippers. The shoes are hand made of red silk with embroidered decoration extending from the toe of the shoe to the heel. They have a silk tab at back and a silk loop on each side.
These nice shoes are in very good to excellent Estate condition. Both the silk body of the shoes as well as the embroidery are great display condition although they reflect signs of minor wear with the most wear in the heal area. Each shoe is stuffed with old tissue that has faded and we are leaving it inside to help keep the shape of the shoes.
The interior of each shoe is also in excellent condition although there is wear in the sole area as it nears the toe. Measure 5" long (from end of heal to toe), 2 3/4" high (back of shoe not including tab) and 2 wide.
