                         Width ~ 2 & 3/4 inches,
                         Heel ~ 2 & 1/2 inches

A very nice pair of ladies vintage off white silk satin wedding shoes, with silver trim, c. 1920's.  In some light they appear slightly two toned, with the back portion of the shoe just a shade lighter than the front.  See first image, at side seam. This is due to the way the satin was purposefully laid on the shoe, and is definitely attractive.  The shoes have a strap, with white mother of pearl button.  I believe at the time this heel style was referred to as a spike heel.  There is a very thin band of silver around strap and upper shoe edge. Lining is white kid leather, with fabric near the toe.

Label inside reads; A. H. Howe & Sons Boston.  Size marked in shoe:  8 a.   Please keep in mind however, that although the size does appear to be
approximately as indicated, we cannot conclusively confirm how antique marked size information compares to our modern sizes, so please review measurements above for additional specifics.

The shoes are in very good overall condition. They have been worn, but not excessively.  A few marks to white interiors, but really quite clean and nice.  The satin remains free of splits and cracks.  There is some light soiling near heel, (see left shoe in third photo) with some very light specks at toe, but the satin can be cleaned to remedy.  Metal button shank has caused some discoloration to the satin in immediate proximity, but this is hidden when strap is secured.  Silver trim around upper shoe edge appears to have oxidized ? (turned brownish) in some areas, especially near the back.  Please see last image with close up of button. (note: strap  and side of shoe appear dark in this image due to low light)  You can see the thin silver band outlining strap and shoe edge.  Directly above the button, on both the strap and shoe, we have tried to show two of these areas where the silver has turned a brownish/bronzy color.  I believe this could possibly be camouflaged with a silver marker, however this band of silver is so thin that it would be almost undetectable when the shoe is worn.

Although the shoes do have a couple of fairly minor cosmetic issues, they are structurally quite sound and in quite good overall condition;  attractive and very wearable for that special bride or to complete that Edwardian -1920's outfit.

Finding good condition vintage shoes, in sizes wearable today, is rather difficult, so we were very pleased to purchase a small collection of size 6, 7, 8 and 9 Victorian, Edwardian and 1920's foot wear, listed separately, here on our web site.
