Another dainty pair of shoes for your dolly closet! This time for the little sisters rather than the fashion ladies; these sweet slippers have lasted out more than a century. Their fawn-colored leather is still soft and supple, with metal flower decorations, scalloped edges, and pale pink silk ribbon ties. If your bebes are jealous of the ladies, bring back their smiles with these dear little accessories. A beautiful pair of antique leather shoes that have stood the test of time. The neatly scalloped top edge is a lovely decorative touch, as is the metallic flower near the toe. Marked size 10, these should nicely fit 26-30” dolls depending on the type of foot. The large ankles and general style of the shoe is best suited to cloth footed dolls like china, papier mache or wax dolls. These shoes even have their original ribbons, although I would recommend using ties that are stronger and keeping the originals on the side for display.
Measurements: 3.25” toe to heel 1” wide, 1.25” tall and 4” ankle circumference.
Marks: “10” near the toes and “JJ” in a trapezoid with “trademark” immediately below it
Condition: Very Good! One shoe has a well matched replacement piece where the shoe wraps around the ankle. The repair is shown in the photos. The shoes are completely wearable, very sturdy for their age! Some minor scuffing and minimal cracking of the leather, as visible in the photos. Please remember, the photos are taken up close, and will display significantly larger than the shoes are in real life; photo with an appropriately sized doll taken to demonstrate scale.
