  • Provenance:
    Given to the vendor by her mother, who worked with the Royal Ballet as a wardrobe mistress. During this time she became friends with many of the well known dancers including Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev. Consequently, Margot Fonteyn kindly signed these ballet shoes for her as a 'thank you' and the dried flower was given to her by Rudolf Nureyev.
