1954 vintage black patent leather and leather stilettos. Pointy toes, decorated with patent bowtie and teardrop peekaboo cutout for a glimpse of cleavage. Slender, curvy heels tapering to stiletto points. Smooth leather insteps, black insoles, black soles. In such fine condition we can't stop staring.

label (in gold on the insoles):
Golden Pheasant Deluxe, with a VALA-LO last. Marked a size 6 B (Euro 37, UK 4.5):

insole length 9.5"
insole width at ball 3"
heel height including cap 2.75"

These are over 60 years old, and in nearly mint condition. Their only flaw is that the black rubber tips on the left heel has cracked and will need a replacement.

The last photo gives some provenance information, showing a pair of Golden Pheasant Deluxe bowtie pumps in an ad from 1954 in the Montreal Gazette (convo for a link and we'll happily send).
