#4123 - c. 1919 E. HAYES, New York Black Velvet Steel Beaded Cutwork Evening Shoes! Wearable size!  My favorite!  I've had them on display for a while in my own home, but when I moved, my displays just weren't the same, so... some of my little treasures are going elsewhere so they can put a smile on your face every time you walk by them - just like they did me!!!  The design is just awesome! The entire front of the shoes are cutout and lavishly decorated with steel beads giving a glittering silver effect.   The unusual "v" straps end in jet black button. Louis heels. One toe has one small line of beads missing, otherwise they are practically pristine!! They were worn, but from the top you'd never know it! Way too small for my 6.5 foot.  Measures: 10" long x 2 1/2" wide, 2 1/4" heel.  These were, and still are, a very elegant and expensive pair of evening shoes!!  The best of the best in beaded shoes!!!  Approx. - SIZE 4 1/2 - 5 AA

SOLD - but on display in Museum Category for Research/Display
