Object Description
One handmade gilt embroidered blue velvet and leather. Shoe is very fragile and disfigured--the heel is bent upwards, the interior sole is missing, the heel is coming apart, and the layers of the shoe are separating at the arch.
Slipper is purported to have been worn by St. Dionysios of Zakynthos, though this is highly unlikely.
