Large buckled shoe worn in the reign of Queen Anne

17th century large buckled shoe. Baroque fashion period.

PLATE X.

THIS large buckled shoe was worn in the reign of Queen Anne (6 February 1665 – 1 August 1714), though, unfortunately, the name of its owner cannot be ascertained. The material is pink silk; the embroidery in silks and metallic threads is very rich, and the colours wonderfully preserved. The heel is of an immense height and breadth, and the toe so extravagantly pointed, that it must have protruded for a considerable distance beyond the foot.

Lady Mary Mordaunt’s yellow silk shoe

17th century shoe of Lady Mary Mordaunt. Baroque period.

PLATE VII.

THIS shoe also belonged to Lady Mary Mordaunt. The material is the same as that of the black one, but its bright colour and elaborate gimp trimming transforms it into a smarter and more stylish shoe. The point of the toe is so extremely sharp and elongated, that it had to be well stuffed with cotton-wool to preserve the shape.

PLATE VI.

LADY MARY MORDAUNT (Mary Howard, Duchess of Norfolk and 7th Baroness Mordaunt, British peeress c.1659–17 November 1705) was the owner of this shoe, the material of which is closely spotted black silk. The shoe is without bow, tie, or straps, and has a plain and insignificant appearance ; and its low heel makes it partake rather too much of the nature of a slipper.
