darning pointe shoes freed – A very pretty Vintage Brentleigh Ware Red Ballet Shoes Wall Pocket, made by the Howard Pottery Co., Shelton, Staffordshire, UK. They are a scarlet red in colour. The wall pocket is in fairly good condition with no chips, cracks or restoration, however, the paint has flaked off in several places and there is some crazing. The shoes can be hung on the wall via the attached red shoes laces, (which were added in the 1980s, replacing the frayed red ribbon).Approximate Measurements (back of the shoes)Full Shoe length: 21.5cm (8.5″)Part shoe length: 19.5cm (7.7″)Maximum width: Approx. 11.5cm (4.5″)Back mark: Brentleigh ware. Made in EnglandThe Registered design number, 871203, is from 1953. The red ballet shoes were probably made as a consequence of the iconic, and popular, British 1948 ballet film, The Red Shoes, by Powell and Pressburger. The film is itself based on the fairytale ‘The Red Shoes’ by Hans Christian Anderson.Original flyer for the film “The Red Shoes.” From The Red Shoes (1948) Collection at Ailina Dance Archives.

Who can get behind the 1977 costumes, though? Despite their retro silliness, the lugubrious, slow slides to second position with meaningless gesticulations might still have suggested enchantment if Neumeier had aligned his emotional stars. But the musical accompaniment to this invasion strays from the lyricism of Shakespeare and the lushness of Felix Mendelssohn’s score to a fever dream set to Gyorgy Ligeti’s “Volumina for Organ.” It’s as though Neumeier slipped Shakespeare’s Hippolyta a dystopic hallucinogen intended for Lisbeth Salander, the Amazonian heroine of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”..
