This is an early sabot (shoe) made at the Grande Maison pottery in France between 1860 and 1883. It is hand-painted with a Petite Bretonne holding a flower and other flower sprays including one on the back of the shoe. There are minor nicks in the glazes on the upper rim and toe, very typical for this soft pottery. A wonderful survivor, measuring 6 inches long, 3 inches high and 2-1/4 inches wide.

Really wonderful pair of ceramic shoes (sabots) made in France by Longwy circa 1910. They are decorated in a typical motif of flowering branches on a turquoise ground with mauve interiors, and have pointed toes and recessed heels. There is a hole in each shoe so they can be joined with a ribbon or thong, then displayed as a hanging ornament, but they are substantial enough to stand as shelf or mantel ornaments. Measurements are 6 inches in length, 2 inches in width and 2-3/4 inches in height. Both are in mint condition.
