DescriptionAn Orson Welles Group of Boots, 1970s.
Three pairs; the first off-white leather, zip-up sides, elastic on the shaft, inside label reads "Di Fabrizio / Los Angeles," inside lining further stamped with maker's name, logo, and address of "8216 West 3rd St / Los Angeles, Cal / 655-5248;" the second white leather, zip-up sides, elastic around the shaft; the third also white leather, zip-up sides; the last two likely made by Di Fabrizio as well (though unmarked) as that was the 'shoemaker to the stars' for many decades in Los Angeles; none have been worn; all appear to be a Size 13 or 14; included with a letter from Beatrice Welles indicating she consigned this lot directly to Heritage Auctions.
According to Beatrice Welles, her father only wore black in his personal life so any shoes of other colors (such as these white boots) would have been made for him to wear in a film or television appearance.
