Vintage Geisha Geta shoes from Japan
These are handmade from painted wooden block soles with a woven raffia insole and silk fabric thong strap pieces or HANAO.
The wooden block base is hollowed out and bells are tied inside, these will jingle when the MAIKO Geisha trainee walks. A brass floral plate is attached to the front possibly to protect the wood from ware. The woven insole, given their approx. age, is in great condition. The silk fabric thong straps, which are referred to as Hanao are worn and may need some attention.
The approximate size of these shoes is maybe a 5 or 6 women's american.
Although we are sure someone could wear these shoes we think they may be fairly uncomfortabe. They would be a great addition to an ethnic/asian art collection or ethnic footwear collection.
