Shoe, anonymous, c. 1660 - c. 1675

h 8.5cm × l 15.5cm. More details

This small shoe with a large bow and a square toe reflects the fashion around 1665. In contrast, the floral decorations are derived from Chinese porcelain. Miniature tin-glazed earthenware shoes remained popular long into the 18th century. Their exact purpose is unknown; perhaps they graced a table or a mantelpiece.

On display in room 2.22-11
