Holiday Ornament – Flame-Stitch Shoe

$30.00

The Flame-Stitch Latchet Shoe Ornament is based on a pair of 18th-century British wool, linen, and metal latchet shoes. The original heels from The Costume Institute collection at The Met, are embellished with so-called bargello, or flame-stitch, embroidery—popular in the late 17th and 18th centuries—in a remarkable zigzag pattern, which we’ve translated onto our hand-painted resin ornament.

Hand-painted cast resin
Includes gold cord for hanging
3 3/4″L x 1 1/4″W x 2″H
Polish with a soft, dry cloth
