A lovely pair of early Victorian straight sole wedding shoes in a silk satin dating from the 1840's to 1860's. Beautifully hand stitched in small even stitches. Lined in linen. The early ladies slipper shoes have rounded squared toes and straight leather flat bottom soles. The embellishment on the toe of the one shoe is missing. However, the ever-so-narrow silk ribbon lacing ties, to secure the shoes around the leg are still attached to the shoes, complete and in good condition. So often the case, the ties are gone or broken/split. The shoes measure 10 inches long x 2 3/8 inches wide. They have been gently worn.
