Moliere Edwardian Pumps
A new heel, a new last, a new and very exciting design. Perhaps the quintessential Edwardian shoe, this elegant design was incredibly popular for the early 20th century into the mid-1920s.

The flared tongue, cross-over strap, and curvaceous French heel combine to create a beautiful and versatile pump. Wear the Molieres as-is or hook fancy Edwardian shoe clips to the strap for endless variations.

New Dashwood Regency Slippers in tan/brown or black/black with ivory embroidery on the toes and our historic trades stamp on the insole.
We tested the Dashwoods at Jane Austen Festival with much success – comfortable and cute!

The embroidery on the toe is done in ivory stitching and based on an original design.

Dashwood Regency Slippers

The Regency era was a wonderful period for footwear. Cutwork, painting, embroidery, foxing – all were popular on these simple slippers, lending interest and fun to otherwise plain shoes. Our new Dashwoods play with color and texture, combining leather, sateen, and embroidery for a unique look.

The Dashwoods are based on several antique examples and are cute, comfortable, and accurate for 1800 – 1820.

Cutwork, straps,buttons, broguing, French heels – the goodness goes on and on!

They’re everything you hope!

Decorated with cutwork and a capped toe, a flash of these beneath your petticoat is sure to set hearts a-flutter.
