Woman's slipper French, 1790s | Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

These unpublished Neoclassical kid slippers are from the Dyer Library/Saco Museum (ME.) Although there is not an established provenance, a handwritten label on the sole of one of them reveals that they were "brought from Paris at the time of the French Revolution." The script looks late 19th-early 20th c. Photographs courtesy Tara Raiselis, Director, Saco Museum. @dyerlibrarysaco

c1810 beige canvas boots. I was so pleased to find these, I hope not too good to be true! They are everyday boots, not fine boots. They even have Regency mud stains around the base. I don't think the fabric is posh 'nankin', just canvas.

Blue leather boots, European, 1795-1810. Boots began to become fashionable for women in the last quarter of the 18th century, but their use was limited primarily to riding and driving. The peculiar wrap-around leg on this example is specific to this period and extremely rare. Although not well-fitted enough to provide a particularly secure fastening to the foot, the wrapped leg may have been intended to provide superior protection from dust and moisture than the standard laced closure.
