Auction Alert: Roger Vivier (??) vintage shoes

Quick note: just came across this lot on eBay, for a fine Coblentz vintage bag and a matching pair of shoes, which will close in a couple hours. The bag is lovely, but more importantly, the shoes are listed as "Roger Vivien" of Paris--which seems likely to be "Roger Vivier," who, as collaborator to Christian Dior, was defining the footwear of the midcentury. As always, buyer beware, but if you wear a narrow 8.5 US and fancy a bit of vintage shoe fashion history . . . take a closer look.

Postscript: The sole bidder got bag and shoes for $20!! A steal.
