Antique silver-plated and leather girl's shoe - Belgium - Silver, Leather, 1940-1949
Silvering or bronze-plating shoes is a long-standing craft and tradition. Already eighty years ago and probably longer ago, this was done in a very traditional way to preserve things that are close to people's hearts for eternity. In this case, what happened to this girl's shoe in the 1940s.
The unique thing about this offer is that the original leather shoe is also offered. This ensures that this item has an absolute, antique decorative value. The patina on the silver-plated shoe is also rare, especially with the newer silver-plating processes.
Silver plating is the coating of an object with a layer of silver. The product to be treated is placed several times in a "bath" so that a thick layer of silver is formed.
An unmissable decorative piece of art!
