Gallery Copy: For over 100 years, G. Fox and Co. was the place to go for all of your needs. The department store in downtown Hartford offered everything from fashion and accessories to furniture and house wares. These red pumps were stamped with the G. Fox name before heading onto the sales floor, ensuring that customers always remembered where they purchased their favorite pair of red shoes.
Description: Red leather pumps with a three-inch-high covered heel and black side edging. The toe of the shoe is decorated with seven tear-drop shaped cut outs forming a triangular shape with a red leather bow at the base across the throat of the shoe. The bow is also decorated wth two tear-drop shaped, padded figures. The interior of each shoe is lined with a beige leather along the sides and a deep red bottom stamped with gold. Decorative stitching is run along the top edge of each shoe.
