Shoes painted for Christmas: So your hooves also take the Swedish look - some folk-inspired motifs painted on the front. Small hearts, flowers and swirls are drawn with white acrylic paint on a red background, with a very fine brush.
Klompen (wooden shoes)
antique red leather girl's shoes ... c. 1900
Dutch Antique Wooden Shoes with wedding carving in a Zaanlandse Oudheidkamer, a house museum in Zanndijk, Holland, Netherlands. The wooden shoes with carved decoration were made for ceremonial use in the early 20th century and show expert craftsmanship. Dutch wooden shoes, or klompen, evolved in Northern Europe in the Middle Ages because of their utility on swampy and wet soil. They are a cliche symbol for the footwear and culture of Holland and are popular souvenirs.
