An excellent pair of black silk satin ball shoes. English ca. 1830 These lovely shoes are of the usual form but with the added asset of the original silk ribbon ankle ties intact. They are lined in linen and kid and the soles are in thin leather.
These shoes were stored flat so there is a light crease on one front, but this is usual and does not detract. Otherwise they are in excellent condition overall. We have never had such a perfect pair in completely original condition.
Please note: the picture of the interior of the shoe shows a shadow. This is not a mark.
The shoes measure 9" in length.
