These are mules from about 1917, they are the newest addition to my private collection. They are brocade with a silk satin interior, I believe that the uppers have a paper interlining. The sole is padded, and the bottoms are leather. The bottoms of the heels are screwed on instead of nailed, which brings me to the patent. The bottom of the shoes are stamped with “Patent Oct, 23 1917”. I think the patent refers to the screws in the heels because I found a picture of an almost identical pair of mules from 1910-1915, the only difference being the brocade. I can’t imagine them past 1920, so I’m just going to stick with the 1917 date. All that aside they seem to be in fantastic condition. They don’t look like they’ve been worn at all, or maybe just once or twice. They’re very tiny as well. Enjoy!
