LOVELY PAIR OF ORIGINAL ANTIQUE DOLL SHOES
I have here for my customers, a lovely pair of original, antique Doll Shoes.
Original shoes are so difficult to find, and many dolls seem to come along
in their bare feet just wanting something on those little feet!
I guess over the years little girls have taken their doll`s shoes on and off and they
would get lost all too easily. These are incised on the soles with the
makers initials - I have had identical shoes to these a few times over the
years, but I haven`t been able to discover who that manufacturer was.
They have perhaps been worn a little at some time in their history, but they
are in good overall condition with just a little normal age wear to the
leather. The leather is dark brown with an almost pearlescent sheen.
The original stitching is all intact with just one little metal button
missing of the two on the left shoe. The original buckles and fancy
leather bows are still there on the toes - perhaps one has faded a little
more than the other, but this could be remedied with a little brown polish -
quite honestly these are antique shoes and I think they are fine just as
