These lovely vintage 1930s peep-toe wedding shoes are made of shimmering champagne silk satin over white kid leather with delicate ankle straps that have rhinestone-encrusted buckles.
These feature sarong twist knots above each of the peep-toe openings, and have soft, fabric-covered insoles with "Thom McAn Supreme" and "Narrow Snug Fitting Heel" embossed in gold.
These are also stamped on the inside of one of the ankle straps with the date "June 10, 1939"
9.25" toe to heel
2.5" across ball of foot (on inside of shoe, not underside)
3 and 3/8" high Spanish heels
which translates approximately to a modern size 7 narrow.
Overall, these are in very good condition with a few minor surface abrasions with a whisper of darkening on the inner side of the heels and some oxidization to the buckles (one of the grommets is missing).
More specifically, the following are only visible upon close up inspection.
Right shoe: missing a grommet on ankle strap, abrading along strap. Slight scuffing at outer ball of foot, back of heel. Slight watermark on outer heel along front face.
Left shoe: slight abrading at buckle of strap. Very slight abrading at outer little toe. Small light scuff on back of heel. Very slight light watermarks on each side of heel along front face.
Considering these are cream colored silk fabric, and nearly 80 years old, these are remarkable.
They are absolutely wearable, but we tend to cherish these sort of treasures and prefer to use them for display, rather than wear. They would, however, be perfect for a princess bride, or for formal evening wear.
