A particularly fine example of the stencil-printed leather, extremely pointed toe, and low heel popular around 1800, these slippers would have served to enliven a plain dress. Yellow and black was a much favored color scheme for stencil-printed shoes. This design has an interesting optical effect of yellow mesh over a black ground.
