"Mom's accessories" 6"x6" oil on gessoboard


These John Jerro shoes and purse were my mothers and I believe she wore them to the Kentucky Derby around 1963.   These shoes are made with leather inside and out with a woven floral silk covering and being a 9 1/2 N I can only wear them for about an hour or possibility two.   Now the purse, they just don't make them like this any more, it is also leather with the woven floral silk on the outside with a green silk satin lining, a zippered pocket on one side with three pockets on the other with one pocket lined in gold lame leather, that holds a double sided green/cream silk satin coin purse and the pocket next to that holds a rounded mirror.  Mother gave me these about 25 years ago and I believe I have worn them twice.
