Fairy Godmothers, read this FIRST!

Now that the pantomime season is upon us, I'm posting the "latest" fashion accesory from the Webb Archive - a glass slipper!  Just what every Fairy Godmother ever wanted.  Perhaps it's fortunate that Cinderella never had one of these - it's elastic sided, and might have just have stretched to  fit one of her Ugly Sisters.....
 
With a pattern number of 10069, it dates from the beginning of 1876 - and it wasn't the only one - there are at least another five!
