I would date these very charming shoes to late 1800s or very early 1900s. The soles appear to have been manufactured, but the rest of the shoe is hand knit wool. There is even a very low heel on the shoes. These are absolutely too cute for your early doll. The charming feet modeling the shoes belong to an early china and she looked quite fetching in them. They are about 3 1/2 inches long and are a bit over 1 1/4 inch at the widest part of the shoe. Sometimes the accessories really do make the outfit and this very sweet pair of shoes certainly will finish off any outfit charmingly. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos. Do take a look at my other early doll items and thank you for shopping Red Dog Dolls.
