These sexy stilettos and sandals, with the matching purse, are handmade out of deep royal blue leather and are as detailed and carefully crafted as a full-sized pair. The heels are trimmed with a jaunty bow. The purse has a matching bow, as well as metal stud adornments and a metal handle. It even opens. The sandals have finely cut straps. Both pairs of footwear have white inner soles and dark tan soles. I suspect these are one-of-a-kind demonstration pieces by a shoemaker or leather worker, and may not have been originally intended for dolls. That said, the set originally included a pair of heeled slippers that perfectly fit my Simon and Halbig 1159 flapper. However, the slippers have a slightly lower heel; these shoes were made for a foot with a more extreme arch, like that found on a 1950s fashion doll, albeit one with narrow feet. The shoes are each about 1.5 inches long and just under one half inch across the ball of the foot. Except for a scratch on the inner sole of one stiletto, they are all in wonderful condition. These marvelous miniatures would look terrific in a doll's trousseau, peeking out from her wardrobe, or sitting under her vanity. And the purse would look so very chic dangling from a doll's wrist.
