1938 | HERMAN B. DELMAN

DELMAN
Since 1919
Herman B. Delman is America's leading high-style shoe designer. Fifteen years ago he made "crazy sketches" which no manufacturers would copy. That forced him to find shoemakers who would. Now he has his own factory; his shoes retail from $16,75 to $150.

FOOTNOTE
The Museum dates both pumps 1937-1939; close enough.
