#5876 - c. 1870 Tan Taffeta Button Boots! Likely Parisian! So sweet for display! Exactly what you dreamed you could find! The classic-looking fine Victorian evening boot with all the bells and whistles... scalloped tops, scalloped button edging, bows on toes, elegant color and fabric. The last pair I sold (almost exactly the same, had a Parisian label! Here's the link to those: http://www.antiquedress.com/item6140.htm) These are in Excellent condition, though a few issues... slight early signs of future silk splitting at the back, and one upper bow is missing (the last pair had both upper bows missing, so I didn't even know they were originally there!!). Incredible condition for 140+ years old!). Unique inner corset-like closure at foot top which ties (see photos) and then the boot buttons over that! Never seen that before (except in the other similar pair)!
