    Hi all!

    I'm curious about the year of these red silk slippers. Leather sole, wood covered heel, kid leather lining with a name in very ornate script that I cannot read. They are quite damaged but darling all the same. 1 teeny tiny silk jersey glove inside the shoe.

    curved 1 inch heel.
    Insole measures 8 inches.

    Those ARE darling! They look to be late Victorian to me, maybe 1890s.

    1880s - the round toe, shaped heel, small buckle and multiple bow are all typical - as is the colour - garnet, which was really popular mid-late 188os.
