Jane Blodgett's Wedding Shoes
C.1862-1865. Wedding shoes as worn by Jane Blodgett Dunnell (for Jane's engagement dress and wedding dress, please see the "Dress" and "Bodice" sections). The shoes are covered in the same ivory silk taffeta as the wedding dress, and are trimmed with paper-taffeta ribbons and blonde (silk) lace.
They have wooden heels. Unfortunately, the
taffeta on the wooden heels has disintegrated because of being so close to the wood.
