This pair of women's ankle boot dates from the 1870s. The boots have white buttons, which have become tarnished. The leather has also aged, giving the boots a greenish blue hue, when they were perhaps brown. The arch on the sole is high and the heel is damaged. It is very narrow, in reflection of the, in general, smaller stature and shoe size of a woman from the 1800s.
