Exceptionally well carved and hand decorated 7 ½” ( 19cm ) long all wooden shoes for a child or larger doll with low heels in back, portrait faces on top centers, one a man, the other a woman, and positioned so they can looking at each other if positioned accordingly. The front sides give an “ alligatored “ look and the toes have a slight pointed affect. Very nice both as just an object of conversation or footwear for the proper doll…….US$ 75.

Unusual in its construction as well as having greater possibilities for functioning as doll shoes are these 7” ( 18 cm ) long ( 3 ½”, 9cm tall ) combination of carved wood and leather strap shoes with floral embossed (tooled) decorations. The entire soles with low heels as well as the front of the toes are well carved and decorated wood. Stretching across the front of the foot and attaching to the heels is a wide leather strap with raised flowers ( tulips? ) and a second undecorated brown leather piece forming the back with a single punched hole on each side near the top to allow for a shoe string to be inserted. Although firm, the leather piece in back is pliable enough to allow it to conform to the actual form of the child’s/doll’s foot whereas an all wooden shoe must fit 100% perfectly to be useful. Beautifully made with more potential usefulness!………………….US$ 95.

7 ½” ( 19cm ) long, 3 ½” (9cm ) tall pair of wooden and leather hand made shoes with pointed toes, the soles and front tops all wood with a notched band and impressed design in front and a solid piece of undecorated leather forming the back with three punched holes allowing for shoe strings. Although the leather parts have some wear, especially on the right shoe, they are still somewhat functional and atypical of those normally found…………………………….US$ 75.
