銀蓮靴 (中国北部、1880-90年代)


Northern Chinese, 1880-90

A BUTTERFLY, centered above the heel on a spring, fluttered and trembled whenever the wearer (or lover) moved her minuscule bound foot. This extremely rare pair of Silver Lotuses (side view on facing page) probably titillated the clients of a Chinese prostitute.
