      Very difficult to make. Babies don’t like wearing shoes. My grandson doesn’t like wearing shoes.

      They look very old, made from a machine, not handmade. Used by a rich family who could afford it, or maybe it was a present for a baby. We can see that it was very much used because it’s quite worn and the colour’s faded. Maybe a child tried to walk on them or maybe it was passed on from one child to another.
