  • This pair of bright red day shoes were worn by Anna Pavlova in the mid to late 1920s. Pavlova was known for her elegant off-stage style and these shoes seem to have been particular favourites. Many photographs survive showing the dancer wearing these shoes in the late 1920s. The shoes are stamped inside: 'H. Aigence,/69 FAUBG. ST. HONORÉ/PRÈS L'ELYSÉE, PARIS'.
