Victorian French Paper Mache Baby Shoe W/Pink Chenille Candy Container

The original use of this little pink shoe was as a holiday candy container. The lady I purchased them from had a very endearing story of their history. Her family had used them for several generations as a gift box for babies first gift from their Grandparents. Can you see a baby ring wrapped in this or first rattle? What a sweet tradition for your babies! The body,if you will, of the piece is made of papier mache which has been dried and wrapped with vintage chenille. I have another shoe which is blue with pink trim. Whether used as a candy container, decoration on the tree or mantle or as a special gift box, they are really dear and precious!
