Object ID #1041531541
This is a Pair of Evening Sandals.
This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Museum of the City of New York as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.
With the use of rhinestones, which were an affordable way to upgrade a plain design and attract attention with reflection, these shoes connect to the materials and styles of costume jewelry and accessories. Evening shoes became increasingly bare in the 1920s, and the T-strap was a popular silhouette.
