Edwardian Era Ladies Silk Shoes
This item is a wonderful pair of ladies shoes from about 1910. They are very typical of the era, with double straps and buttons and a heel flared at the bottom. The material is black silk with leather soles. They are in remarkably good shape and very wearable (if you feet are really small!). There is one scraped area on the heal area of the left shoe, and the right shoe has a what looks like a pull in the fabric near the top of the inside toward the heel. Neither spot appears to be fully through the fabric. The bottoms of the soles do show some wear, and the heels are worn to the nails.
It is hard to say what size these shoes are, as there is no size marked. We guesstimate that they are about a size 5 1/2 to 6. Measuring from the tip of the toe to the heel, they are just over 9 inches long. They are also pretty narrow, measuring just 2 1/2" across the wides part of the sole.
The shoes have various markings. The left one says Laird, Schobar and Co; Philada.; the right says Wetherby Kaiser Shoe, Los Angeles Pasadena California. There are also hand written tags in both shoes that have numbers on them - 3c, 57110, 5409.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Black, Size: 5 1/2
