Victorian Ivory Silk Shoes

These Ivory silk shoes with low heels, ribbon and lace rosettes are from the mid-19th century and were part of H. M. Queen Alexandra’s trousseau. Princess Alexandra of Denmark married Prince Albert Edward, son of Queen Victoria and heir to her throne, in 1863. Together they had six children, including Princess Maud Charlotte Mary Victoria who became the queen consort of Norway. After Queen Victoria’s death in 1901, Prince Edward ascended to the throne as King Edward VII.
