Sometimes the joy of collecting antiques is in the hunt, as one never know what might be waiting at that next estate sale, outdoor market or any other venue collectors and dealers search. So it is, with this perfectly mint pair of Edwardian baby shoes or slippers. And no less in the original shoe box with its great graphic of a sweet baby. Such a beautiful gift to welcome a new baby.
Shoes are mint in box dating from the late teens - 1920's. A few details of the box, itself. Figures march around the outside edge of the lid with nice graphics of the baby on the top. Box is in very nice condition except some fading of the color on the lower portion. Some tiny little edge wear but minor.
And now for the darling contents of the box. White leather booties stitched in blue thread. Satin bow adorns the front of the shoes. Blue fabric lining inside. The shoes are marked 2 2806 inside bottom. Cardboard tubing still inside to hold the side of shoes.
Measurements: 3-7/8" long from the heel to toe. 1-3/4" across the ball of shoe. Height of shoe at the back is 2-1/2" tall. 5-1/2" circumference at the top opening.
Condition: extremely nice. Many of our items are more than suitable for children's re-enactment or renaissance accessories.
