Description

A single baby shoe (there is no other one), probably made by my grandmother Maria Antonia Ludovici Martinez (1905-1991).  Source of design unknown, crocheted of thread that has yellowed and browned unevenly, found in a box containing her unfinished projects.  The little open toe at the front of the shoe makes it like a sandal, and the side opening and tie are very interesting details to me.
