Antique rare Victorian silk shoe boots with large violet purple silk rosettes
GORGEOUS RARE ANTIQUE SILK VICTORIAN ROSETTE SHOE BOOTS. Im finding it hard to part with these beauties, so gorgeous and so rare. A very lovely example of an early 1840s pair of silk Adelaide boots with knock on heels. They are ivory/cream silk and adorned with huge violet silk ribbon rosettes that are very striking against the creamy ivory tone. Rare to find such striking antique shoes, you dont often find them. As you can see they display beautifully. Perfect for the collector of antique shoes and for someone wanting a Nordic display in a glass dome or cabinet. The condition is generally very good, strong and clean. The toes have a little wear as to be expected. One boot has a matching silk patched repair on the side near the sole and one tiny hole. The other boot has a small stitched repair, a small hole and both have the odd scuff and little mark here and there and marks on the heels. One has broken missing original lacing. I havent untied them as this can damage them, best to leave in place. Enjoy and please see my other vintage and antique treasures listed. PLEASE SEE MY EXCELLENT FEEDBACK.
