Chinese Qing dynasty Han embroidered childs boots
Please refer to our stock # TC221 when inquiring.
This pair of boots were made for the child of a wealthy Han family of the late Qing dynasty. They were made from a pale peach colored silk fabric and hand embroidered with silk thread using a satin stitch. The color on lower part of the boots, especially on the outside, has faded to a soft golden color. This would be due to sun exposure during use as the upper part of the boots would be covered by the childs pant legs. Considering the pristine condition, this child was carried about and did little walking on his own.
The thickly padded soles measure 6 inches.
