Victorian Ladies Julia Marlowe Boots w/Louis Spool Heels Brown 1900 Size 6 NWOT
GREAT pair of high lace up boots from the Victorian Era. Gorgeous chocolate brown leather, they have original laces, and leather soles and lovely stacked wood Louis Heels or also known as Spool Heels and Pointed toes. The sole is stamped " Riches Famous Julia Marlowe Shoe" It's soft and supple even after all these years.
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.
