Miniature Bound Foot Silk Embroidered Chinese Shoes C19th
A fine example of highly skilled workmanship in miniature is shown here in these tiny bound foot shoes from 19th century China.
The quilted sole and heel are particularly interesting.
They are in excellent condition and they look as though they have never been worn. Some fading overall, but the embroidery, silks and quilted heel and soles are all in near perfect condition.
10cm L X 4cm widest point, 1cm narrowest point
