Antique Leather Baby Boot or Dolls Boot ( single) 1840s Hand Made
Single Antique baby or dolls black leather boot. It is handmade, with unique scalloped top, and the original red silk lacing, though disintegrated. They are in very good condition, the leather is still soft and supple.
I'm not sure why there is only one, though since there were several singles in the lot, maybe part of a collection? It is handmade,and my even predate the 1840's.
This is part of a collection we recently procured from Carey's Shoe Store, a store that was established in 1919 in Charlevoix, Michigan. The family recently decided to let go of the remaining stock of the store, about 150 pairs, most new and in their original boxes. We will be listing them over the next few months.
