1940s CC41 Brocade Wedge Sandals by Joyce
Beautiful but worn wedge sandals by Joyce of California. The style is called the Dressmaker sandal and features a classic crossover vamp with raised, stitched stripes. They have buckled sandal straps, a small platform and a 2 inch wedge heel. The brocade features daisy like flowers and is still shiny.
Overall the condition is good and sturdy, however the gold finish on the wedge and platform is badly discoloured. I think this is because it was an applied mirror finish rather than a dye.
Modern size UK 3, EU 36, USA 5.5

width 2.9 inches - average.
Will they fit me?
Converting vintage shoes to modern size charts is a minefield. This is why I give sizes in inches. Compare the pair you are thinking of buying to a pair of a similar style you already own which fit well.
Refer to our size chart for a rule of thumb conversion.
I use as much recycled packaging as possible with a minimum amount of new to ensure safe delivery.
Which shippers do you use?
I use Royal Mail, domestically and a combination of Royal Mail and your national carrier abroad. So for example USPS in the United States.
