These boots were made in England by Manfield expressly for H. Based on my research and discussions with my father, I have estimated that they were bought sometime between 1925 and 1940. The materials used in making these boots are: Leather, Wood, Metal (small silver nails on the bottom soles), and Thread. Features include: Leg opening is higher on the outside of the boots and tan leather interior with brown cloth loop boot pulls.
Each boot is stamp marked (part of the stamp was cut out during the making of the boot)- Made in England by Manfield expressly for H. Kauffman & Sons New York. The numbers beneath the stamp mark read, 9143A // M60/B400// 134-5-110. There is no size on/in the boots, but my best guess is around a Mens size 11. Height (from the top of the highest part of the boot to the bottom)- 17.
Length (from toe to heel)- 11. Width (at the widest part of the sole)- 3.75.
Circumference (top opening of the boot)- 14.25. Circumference (6 inches below the top opening)- 13.5. These boots would be great to wear or even display-- I would imagine, they will still be around for a few more hundred years, if the new owner takes as great care of them as we have.The item "Equestrian Horse Riding Boots 1920-40s Manfield H.
