Pair of chestnut kidskin slippers and their carrying case. The slippers are a simple construction of three panels jointed along the back of the heel, and the inside and outside of the foot arch. The sole is the same leather as the body of the shoe, and can therefore the entire shoe can be folded and stored in the zipped carrying case. In view of the carrying case, the collapsible construction, and the lightness of the design, these slippers were probably meant for travel. The slippers are lined in lightweight beige cotton moleskin.
Gift from Elizabeth S. Brown
Good condition. These shoes show sign of wear along the front edge, and the leather varnish is cracked / missing in some areas.
