Catalog Number 2008.23.1a
Object Name Slipper, Wedding
Description One of a pair of wedding slippers, with ribbons still attached. There is no perceptible difference between the slippers in terms of which might belong on the left or right foot. This is consistent with the time period, which was before the advent of left and right shoe forms. Related documentation describes the slippers as having been "worn by Katy Hapgood in 1823 upon marriage to Abraham Roy of Stow."
Date 1823
Credit line Gift of Mrs. Frank Bruce
