...And Another Beautiful Item to Add to My Christmas List!

      After wowing us with her Georgianas, historically accurate 18th century shoes, and later a leather version, the Devonshires, American Duchess has done it again and produced gorgeous and historically accurate shoes: this time, the "Pemberley", a historically accurate regency shoe with all the appropriate details. The Presale is going on now for these beauties. I definitely need to add this one to my Christmas List...

And a little bit about the shoes:

The "Pemberley" Regency shoes are closely based on extant footwear from the 1790s through 1810.  The smooth, dyable, hand-sewn leather upper is designed to be lovely enough formal occasions, and durable enough for walking in the countryside.  Particular attention was paid to the point of the toe, as well as the other hallmarks of Regency historical footwear, with the main goals being both historical accuracy and all-day comfort.
