Another baby shoe planter! What a sweet tradition these dear little shoe planters are from! I remember when I was young, ladies would receive these as gifts in the hospital when they had had a baby!! They would be decorated with a wide piece of satin ribbon, tied in a bow and they would contain a tiny ivy plant!! What a sweet first present it made for new mommies!! As soon as I saw these at a local flea market, I knew they had to come home to Mirabella, so that they could then, in turn, come home to you!! This little shoe is simply sweet in all white glaze. It is not marked on the bottom, but it is probably from the 1950's or early 1960's. It is 4 1/2 inches long and 2 3/4 inches high. In beautiful condition and so, so sweet. I have even laced a piece of satin-edged organza through the holes and tied it in a large bow, just as it would have been given as a first present to a dear baby! Perfect for a vintage or retro baby shower decoration!
