Antique Leather Childrens Slipper Shoe ( single) 1840s Hand Made
Antique child's or doll's dark brown leather slipper or shoe- not sure why there is only one, but there were other singles indication perhaps a collection. It is handmade, and lined in red and white silk windowpane material. It looks much like other shoes I found for the era of the 1840s-50'They are in very good condition, the leather is still soft and supple.
and it has a little stacked wood heel. It also could have been a salesman's sample.
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.
