Pair of shoes with ribbon laces, Hendrik Willem Berenbak, c. 1814 - c. 1825

silk, l 21cm × w 5.5cm. More details

At first sight, these appear to be standard shoes from the first quarter of the 19th century. What is unusual, however, is the printed label on the insole. It bears the name of the cobbler and his address (15 Plaats in The Hague). Until then, craftsmen had generally remained anonymous. Also indicated in each shoe is for which foot it was intended.
