This is a fabulous pair of antique shoes for an antique size 5 Chevrot body Bru Jne. The uppers are leather, the leather soles are nicely marked 5, and within the typical "oval mark" Bru Jne Paris. One bow and buckle is intact, but this is missing from the other shoe. Some of the silk edging around the shoes' openings is remarkably intact, while frayed in other areas. The black button and loop closures are intact. There is a tear in the leather which goes through to the lining of the shoe. (I have ca 1880 fabric which is similar to the lining used on these shoes. I'd be happy to patch this are myself, or send a piece of this fabric to the purchaser. Let me know your preference.) There is very minor wear on the toes of the shoe where attached to the soles.
