Description                           Estimate: $10,000 - $12,000          

Jacqueline Kennedy’s personally-owned and -worn pair of black low-heeled designer shoes with leather uppers bearing an open Moorish design near toe, printed with the brand name in gold script on the right insole, “Pappagallo,” and with the name of the department store on the left, “Bonwit Teller Boston.” In well-worn condition with expected wear. These heels originate from the estate of Officer James H. Boyer, Sr., who served on the US Capitol police force beginning in 1949. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from a descendent of Boyer, in part: “While continuing to serve on the Capitol police force, Boyer became a personal driver for the Kennedy family, often being called on at late hours, and was employed by Jackie Kennedy as a handyman at the Kennedy’s Georgetown home. Once, while she was clearing her closet, Jackie offered Boyer some of her worn shoes and handbags to give to his wife. This pair of Moorish design, black leather Pappagallo shoes…is one of those gifts.” Jackie was quite self-conscious about the size of her feet, with each of these measuring 10″ long. Sold in boutique shops and designed for the genteel woman, Pappagallo shoes were immensely fashionable and popular among New York socialites throughout the 1950s and 60s.
