There are some things that are just so hard to find in antique form and these little doll shoes certainly are one of those things. These tiny shoes are about 1/16 under an inch, so they are not quite an inch in length. They have been fashioned from just a beautiful light blue silk and are decorated with my ever favorite metallic trim, this one being a silver trim to complement that perfect blue. Someone also fashioned and stitched to the shoes crocheted stockings. The stockings have a bit of an issue which I photographed for you. I would simply add a couple of stitches and keep them as is. Or you can probably trim them from the shoes, but I would not recommend it. Stockings are 1 1/2 inches from top of shoe to top of sock .Think of all the tiny things your mother threw away; can you believe these tiny shoes have survived probably from around 1870s-80s? What a fortuitous dolly thing to happen. So please feel free to ask questions or request more photos. Do take a look at my other early doll items and than you for shopping Red Dog Dolls.
