Antique Wool Boot Tops “Spats” Ladies – 1900s

Shipping to United States: Free
Sorry, this item has sold.

Although spats for women were not nearly as common at the turn of the 20th century as they were for men, many fashion-forward women did wear them over their taller, more plain boots as a period fashion statement. Made of a felted wool, they were often referred to as Boot Tops and originally made to button around the ankles to protect shoes and socks from mud. Throughout the ages many military uniforms incorporated the spat to not only protect, but to add ankle support. History aside, this lovely pair of wool spats will add a fabulous vintage Victorian vibe to your favorite pair of boots! Made from a lightweight and durable wool felt in a dark camel color, 14 button enclosure, marked with a manufacturer’s stamp inside but is not completely legible, very good condition with some light pocking of the wool (see pictures), c1900s. These are meant to fit a more delicate foot/heel, please note the following measurements: 10 ½ inches tall x 7 inches long front to back, 2 ¾ inch long heel opening and 4 inches from heel strap to the front of the spat.
