Hi, I received your images. The shoes are a little older than when the lamps were made. The porcelain shoes here date to around 1900 and then they were used to embellish a lamp from circa 1940s. The shoe is referred to as "Dresden Style Porcelain". Dresden is a place in Germany and a style that denotes bright spring pastel colors, 18th century fashions, flowers and courtesans all depicting allegories of love. On today's market, each lamp can sell for an average high of $75 each or up to $200 - $225 for the pair. Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars.
