Welcome to the Shoe & Boot Department of Poppies Cottage.

Finest Footwear of all descriptions for the Lady,Doll & Baby of discernment!

*Mostly over 100 years old, these are collectors items

Despite obvious usage to the soles and heels of these wonderful shoes, the silk satin and leather tops are in very good condition.

Furthermore, they have all the razamataz of the flapper night life!

More Details

In black silk satin, with gold coloured kid fronts, the shoes make a real statement and will look glorious on display.
The gold kid is keyhole cut and has an elastic centre front, over which is sewn a huge gilt metal and 'diamonte' paste buckle.
The shoes have a very pointed toe and a nicely curved 2" high heel.
The shoes have an inner label that says 'Clarks Tor Street Brand, Somerset'. If this is the Clarks still famous today, they were very glam in the 1920s!
Apart from the well used, but undamaged sole and heel bases, and discolouration commensurate with being worn to the inner soles, the satin to the heels and feet is very good for age with no splits and just a few gentle areas where the fabric has surface wear, icluding the tips of the toes.
The elastic [unseen] has stretched over time and a stitch to tighten would enable the buckles to sit better.
As far as I can see, just two of the tiny diamontes have been lost, and the buckle of one shoe has come unstitched from the satin below and needs to be re-attached to at least one side to keep it firm.
The shoes appear to be a size 3 and are 9" long inside. The width at ball of foot is just 2.5". But they are surely too special to wear!
