This is a girls sleeping slippers were probably the girls first pair after foot binding. They are from Hubei province, and over 100 years old. Made with silk fabric,embroidered with satin stitch using silk thread in a floral motif, they are soft sided for "comfort" and were not worn for walking, just sleeping. Though clearly from their shape, they were worn, at least minimally worn, but rarely touched the floor.
