Pair of evening shoes

Go to Nottingham City Museums
NCM 1980-328

These shoes were made by a European shoemaker working in India, and may have been worn at some Royal or Viceregal ceremony, perhaps connected with the Delhi Durbar in 1911 – the grand extravaganza to mark the coronation of King George V as King-Emperor of India.
