Antique 1860's Victorian Sateen Scalloped Button Up Boots~shoes~mann & Beals Co For Sale
For your offerding consideration today, we have a pair of antique Victorian button up boots or shoes. They are made of black sateen fabric and have all buttons present on both shoes. The button holes are nicely scalloped and the tops of the shoes are scalloped also. The leather soles have the name MANN & BEALS impressed into the leather. This company was formed shortly after the civil war in Milwaukee, and Mann who was a soldier only stayed with the firm for a year. That would date these to the 1860's. The shoes have some wear and pulls to the fabric, the worst one on the left shoe near the center seam. Still a lovely pair of post war shoes.As with all shoes of the era, these do not have a size in them, so please do not ask me to guess what size they are, I don't know, and I don't want to guess, so I have provided the following measurements so that you may decide if these would work for you. When placed up against a wall, and measured from the outside, where the heel of your foot would sit, to the tip of the toe, they measure a little over 9 inches long, and the width of the sole at the widest part is 2 1/2 inches . Please do not ask me to remove the stuffing to get an interior measurement. The shoes have been stuffed for years, and I do not want to remove it.
