These are oriental slippers. They belong to my wife, she got them from her grandfather who was stationed in Korea in the 50s. I'm just trying to get an idea of what they are and the time period they are from.

There are 2 pairs, both red. One has embroidery of a dragon, the other is best described as a lantern with blades comming out of it.

they are right about 12' long, feel like the red cloth is a type of burlap, think duffle bag texture.

Each pair has a different address which i have been unsuccessful in locatiing any history on.

The dragon pair has the follow address:
Colourful embroidery shop
address
no. 22 au-mee street
taipei

the latern pair has the following:
Hung Fa
No. 32 d-mei street

any insight or knowledge on these slippers would be appreciated.
