Just look at these dainty, detailed pointy Ladies' boots in glove-soft chestnut leather, c 1910 by Wanamaker, whose successful European houses in London & Paris lead to the opening of the renowned Oak Hall location in Philly. "Spectator shoes" /oxford wing tip - style punched accents on each toe. Elegant sculpted heel adds flattering height without sacrificing stability. Interior has cream cotton lining on the tongue & what I think is a cream wool/silk or cotton/silk twill interior. The shoe leather has some scrapes/scuffs and areas of wear as expected for 100 year old shoes-- overall the hide is very supple. All stitching and sole areas are sturdy. Gorgeous leather patina adds a lifetime of character. Approx 10" tall, 11" long (extremely pointed toe box), 2.75" widest part of sole, marked 6 AAA. Metal-tipped laces appear to be original. "Invisible" metal gromments inside each lace hole. Leather sole & stacked 2" heels are in great shape with even wear. Maker name "John Wanamaker Philadelphia New York Paris London" is stamped in gold. Wanamaker was famous worldwide for his pioneering marketing prowess (came up with the idea of money back guarantee, full page ads, and put on huge promotional Christmas events) and employee benefit programs (medical care, pensions, profit-sharing, advancements towards Native Americans & African Americans, recreation facilities, etc). His grand 12 story namesake department store is a historic landmark to this day in Philly, and featured an ornate crystal chandeliered tea room, a 2500 lb eagle, and what is still the largest pipe organ in the world! He also served as Postmaster general and had numerous mansions in the US and overseas. If you are lucky enough to have tiny narrow feet, these high quality shoes would be an exceptional authentic crowning touch for old west, titanic era, victorian / vintage burlesque, steampunk, historical reenactment outfits, theatre costume, bioshock infinite cosplay, edwardian/downton dress up, etc. They also are perfect for display.
