Spitalfields silk shoes, French, c.1760.     The American colonies were an eager market for English luxury goods in the 18th century and manufacturing centres, such as Spitalfield’s, flourished meeting this demand. Many of the fine textiles used to create women’s footwear in the 18th century were dress remnants. The design of blue stripes and delicate floral sprigs on this pair of Spitalfield’s silk shoes reflect the full flowering of Rococo style.
