it could be made in different materials: sterling silver (as shown), bronze and gold(by special order). the price in bronze and sterling silver is $280 and in gold depends on the market price, please don't hesitate to contact me before placing and order.
the color of the "sole" is made with enamel using the hot process, and comes in black and red; any other colors could be made by special request.
the original mold was hand carved in wax and then cast in the metal of your wish.
*story behind design: in 1933, dali was photographed by his wife gala with one of her slippers balanced on his head. in 1937 he sketched designs for a shoe hat for schiaparelli, which she featured in her fall-winter 1937-38 collection. the hat, shaped like a woman's high heeled shoe, had the heel standing straight up and the toe tilted over the wearer's forehead.this hat was worn by gala dali, schiaparelli herself, and by the franco-american editor of the french harper's bazaar, heiress daisy fellowes, who was one of schiaparelli's best clients.
