18th Century Shoes

Circa 1730, a wonderful pair of ladies shoes with a lovely damask brocade design of large bold flower designs. In the 18th C. ladies shoes were quite luxurious and many of them would have matched their dresses with fabrics produced by Spitafields, etc. These shoes seem to be "straights" which means that there was not a clearly defined left or right shoe. Shades of green, cream and browns are used in the inate fabric design.
