Rare Antique Childs Boot ( single) 1847 Hand Made
Antique childrens dark brown leather boot, perhaps it was a salesman's sample? It is handmade, dark brown leather, with leather soles hand stitched and nailed, and lined in red leather. It has an interesting brass front. The tag was on it when I bought it, but my research also verifies the date posted.
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.
