SP1 Child’s boots (detail)

The green boot was originally embroidered with three flowers but two appear to have been unpicked, leaving a single wild rose, a symbol of simplicity. A similar trio of roses were painted by Charlotte in July 1830. The only signs of fire damage are slight singeing of the laces and rosettes.

Boot length 13 cm
