Circa 1890-1900 Chinese bound feet slippers. Made in a taupe colored silk with a creme colored embroidery of floral designs throughout both shoes. The top and bottom rim is trimmed in brown silk. The interior and the soles are covered in beige linen fabric. There is brown and creme floral trim running up the back heal. Completely hand made. This pair of slippers most likely comes from the Qing Dynasty - the tradition of foot binding can be traced back to 700 AD and was not legally banned until 1911.
