Antique English ivory silk satin ladies’ pair of Adelaide ankle boots with side lacing, c.1830-50. Beautiful and elegant pair of petite, square-toed and narrow indoor shoes, with flat, straight-lasted leather soles. Both the heal and interior sole of each shoe, is lined in fine white kid leather, and the tongue in pink silk taffeta. The eyelets are hand-stitched and the interior is hand-labeled, as shown. Despite the condition, these retain their seductive beauty and decorative appeal.

The very delicate nature of the materials employed, means that these were not intended to be robust, long and hard-wearing shoes and it is not surprising to encounter wear and damage to the textile fibers. On this pair, there is considerable loss around each heal, as shown, and an overall yellowing of the textile.

Size: Sole length is 9 ½”. Sole width is 2 ¼”. Height at ankle is 5”.
