Rococo Shoes, England, ca. 1796

antique rococo shoes 1796 1 antique rococo shoes 1796

Towards the end of the 18th century, silk shoes gradually disappeared. Leather shoes were in fashion. Just like these shoes from the late rococo period, ca. 1796. Origin: England. Checked, printed leather. Silk was only used for decorative elements and laces. At that time, the term sandal was used to describe any shoe with closed toes and laces. With these "sandals" the laces did not survive. Only remains are still visible in the inner shoe. But dark brown silk tassels with small buckles decorate these British leather shoes. The shoe cutout and the lateral seams are decorated with brown silk ribbon. The shoes are lined with white linen. Discreet wear marks on the flat leather sole. The heel area is marked with brown leather piping. From 1795 onwards, the heels begin to disappear from women's fashion, an implementation of the democratic philosophy that all people are born on the same level. Very well preserved. Very rare to find. We found a similar example in a book: Jonathan Walford – Der verführerische Schuh, 2007, p. 54.
