Antique Pre Civil War Era Fabric Side Lace Straight Sole Shoes~boots W Rosettes:
For your consideration today, we have a pair of antique pre civil war side lace boots or shoes. The shoes are made of fabric, they lace on the sides, and have rosettes at the toe area of each shoe. The heel is leather covered, and the soles are straight soles with no left or right swing. The eyelets are thread stitched, not metal. Condition wise, the shoes are showing their age. The fabric has soiling throughout, some wear through at the toe on one shoe, the laces are incomplete on each shoe, and the leather on the heels has puckers and missing spots. The rosettes appear to be complete, they are made of ribbon and lace, and they have soiling also. The shoes could probably be cleaned, but I will leave that up to the new owner. Even with the flaws, for shoes this old, they are still in decent shape, and would be a nice addition to a collection.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 are 9 inches long, and the width of the sole at the widest part is 2 1/8 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.

Buyer pays actual shipping only, whether you buy one item or several, we love to combine on shipping, and I never charge a handling fee.(Please remember this when you leave your star rating).
