If you look closely, you’ll see that these pumps were Made In America. When was the last time we saw that printed on something? It’s always the U.S.A. now, and has been since the 1970’s, I think.
These beauties are from way before that time – 1940’s – 1960’s – and have wonderful leather construction. Although you can’t see it in the photo, the heels are 3″ high and sturdy.
Though found in Ireland (Dublin, to be exact), it goes to show that trade for some goods was going on even back then. Maybe this pair are from the early mid-century era when Europe suffered more than North America from the effects of war and had to import many goods that otherwise would have been made there.
We’ll never know the exact story of how these slippers danced their way across the Atlantic, but someone loved them well and they found their way to – guess who . . . . . . . .
