Scope and content

This object is a pair of silk and cloth shoes with decorative embroidery on the sides. The shoes are like flats with a think leather base that is pointed in the front and rounded in the back with the heel just slightly raised. Running around the outside of the sole and down the middle is thick rope threading that holds the sole onto the shoe. Just above this sole is a small black leather stripe that creates a border where the shoes fabric and sole meet. The shoes are created with a solid piece of purple silk fabric that has a border sewn down the heel. A small flap is also attached above this border on the heel. The opening at the top of the shoe has a black cloth border and the inside of the shoe is lined with a light blue cloth. Stitched all over the outsides of the shoes are designs of what are presumably birds such a phoenixes with a pink flower in the center of the toe of the shoe. The thread is all light shades of green, blue, purple, and pinks. Inside the shoe on the fabric there are Trade Mark stamps in a purple ink.
