Here are three pair of slippers made in years past and presented as a gift to a missionary serving in Bulgaria. Each pair is made of a wool blend type material and each is decorated with hand stitched designs. Each pair is in excellent condition and was never used or barely used. The first pair pictured has a soft cream design with red highlights on a black background. This pair is about 8 1/2" heel to pointed toe and 2 1/2" across ball of foot on bottom. In addition to the pointed toe, these slippers have a tall "pull" tab in the back which also is decorated.
The second pair shown has a dark blue or navy background (appears lighter and darker in photos) with red handwork designs, gold interspersed threads, pointed toes and pull tab in back. This pair is about 9" toe to heel and fit a ladies (size 8 1/2-9 shoe). The bottom inside is lined with a satiny fabric.
The last pair is a cream colored slipper with red accents and is about 9" toe to heel and is 3" across ball of foot on bottom. This pair has no "pull" tab.
Add these to your collection of shoes or fashions from other lands. Lovely!
