The collection of Middle Eastern shoes originate from a variety of countries including Turkey, Palestine, Algeria, Egypt, and Armenia.
From Palestine are a pair of wedding slippers from 1830. Worn by a woman, these slippers are white velvet embroidered with tinsel and magenta ribbon edge.
From Turkey are a pair of "Nalans". They are made of brown wood with black straps and have carved medallions at the heels and toes.
Another and final highlight from Turkey are a pair of priest's slippers. These slippers are made of yellow leather lined with red embroidery. Unfortunately only one of these shoes remain in our collection.
