Antique Chinese  embroidered pair of Lotus Shoes

This pair of woman's Lotus shoes for bound feet have the high attached heel and upturned toe typical of the style during the later 19th century. Tiny stitches and the careful embroidery on a cotton background fabric indicate that this pair was made by a woman with limited finances.
