Shoe of Lilias, daughter of the 12th Earl of Eglinton

18th century rococo style shoe of Lilias.


THIS shoe is made of lavender-coloured kid, with slashes of white satin “let in” in front, forming a pattern narrow at the toe, and widening towards the instep. The bottom of the heel is in the form of a heart, which peculiarity cannot be observed in the illustration, though perfectly apparent in the original. It belonged to Lilias, daughter of the 12th Earl of Eglinton (Hugh Montgomerie 1739–1819, Scottish peer, politician, and composer.), and was worn by her at her marriage about the middle of the eighteenth century. The height of the heel is what is worn at present, but the toe is pointed, and filled up for half an inch with wadding.
