Girl's Spats

These were common to wear during the cold weather. Since winter boots as we know them, were not invented, spats could be worn over shoes or boots to keep the ankles warm and the shoes relatively clean. These ones would have been worn by a girl about the age of 7. Made out of felt with leather straps to go under the shoe.
