This is an old, Miniature Ladies Glass Slipper. It is truly Exquisite, Adorable in fact. The colors are very beautiful and the hand painted flowers enhance the shape that will make you fall in love. I was sorting through Gram's slipper collection and noticed this little gem. I remembered it from when I was a boy and even remembered what shelf it sat upon. I cleaned it and very carefully went over the slipper with a Magnifying Glass and found t were no chips or cracks or crazing on any of this little Miniature shoe. Please see Pictures. This slipper is in excellent condition and I want to be very clear about NO PROBLEMS. It is as the pictures show an Exquisite example. Please review the pictures very carefully and make your decision based on the high-quality pictures. I've done my best with thepictures to make the details clear but if you need additional photos ofsomething else please don't hesitate to ask.
In order to maintain my hard earned credibility I research every item I list. I want you to be able to trust that I have been doing my homework and trying the best that I can to offer genuine and authentic vintage and antique art to my buyers. Sometimes this authentication process is a highly enjoyable activity and at other times it can be most frustrating. Particularly as Porcelain, China and Glass Boots and Slippers are a new genre for me, I have to be careful.
If anyone has anything to contribute to my listings I will be most grateful and will revise, post any updates and review comments so I can share your expert opinions and suggestions with all interested parties. As you will learn below this series of offers is extraordinarily special to me and I'll tell you why.
I am proud to announce that these are members of my Grandmother's extensive Glass Slipper collection. Every since I was a very little boy I was entranced by these hundreds of tiny glass slippers glimmering on the shelves in the corner of her living room. Some of them were frothy and frilly beyond belief. Others, like the old Fenton Art Glass sparkled like diamonds on her nick-nack shelf next to her chair and lamp. I was never allowed to touch them and when she died she gave them to me because I admired them so much for so many years. My Dad told me that she had been collecting them since she was a little girl and that her mother had collected them as well. I now find myself in the position of letting them go to collectors around the world. I like the idea of putting these into the hands of people who will appreciate the depth of her wonderful collection.
A serious collection like this is something really special so I am reaching out to all who read this to feel free to connect with me and help me along the way. I don't know about all the marks and styles as much as a real glass slipper collector would be and I am trying to educate myself as I go. I will photograph at least 6 (six) angles of each piece and thoroughly document any marks and any flea bites that may exist on any of the pieces. I would imagine that as time goes by (and with your help) I will become more expert at identifying each of these lovely little treasures and can post them in better categories to aid you in your searches. Additionally, I have been told that a storefront on eBay will assist in the identification and transfer of these wondrous items to you the avid collector.
