Antique Victorian Ladies Lace Up Leather Boots Perfect for Halloween
Happy Halloween!! These fabulous Witches Boots were found on Virginia's Eastern Shore and promise to bring good luck with them! Fine condition with appropriate wear make them a unique find!
The boots date to the late1800's to the turn of the century and reflect the style of this period. I am not sure what the exact size is but am confident they are at least a size eight (8). Nice soft feel to the time worn supple leather. The soles are in very good condition and have the correct amount of wear. Image 4 shows more of a worn sole compared to image 7 on the left shoe. This is because I took the left shoe with the flash on but rest assured, both soles do have identical wear. The wooden heels do not show any signs of scuffing and are in good condition. There are seven tiny nails that are present on the outside of the heel and part of the heel has a half moon shape on the inside edge.
The original laces were in bad condition so they were replaced with new woven laces that I curled to add an interesting look. They have been stuffed with tissue paper but the original newspaper stuffing they came with was left intact on the bottom of each boot. I also added some aged homespun fabric to the tops of the boots for a unique primitive look. The checked fabric boasts a russet and tan color that really compliments the black leather.
These wonderful Ladies High Top Lace ~ Up Boots would look awesome on display for Halloween to lend a touch of whimsy to your homestead! Just so charming and all you need to add is the broomstick! Enjoy!
They measure 10" Tall not including the puffed tissue paper and fabric top which is 2", approximately 10 3/4" across the bottom length & 3" across the width @ the widest point.
