Exciting news about these being part of the Firebird Collection! For some reason, I've always thought they look like they're covered in candies. What a yummy accessory set!

Very informative detail..


Hello, I was wondering if anyone could lead me to info on how to date a pair of Delman shoes? Thanks!

FIDM Museum

Hi Christine,

There aren't any definitive sources on Delman shoes. All I can suggest is research, both on Delman and on shoe styles. Try comparing the shape and details to shoes that are dated. There are a lot of books on 20th century shoes, and you could also try online museum collections. Good Luck!


Did Gilbert Adrian ever design for Delman? If so, were the shoes marked Adrian or Delman-Adrian?

FIDM Museum

Hi Betty - thanks for the question! Gilbert Adrian's business closed in 1952, so these shoes would be too late for him to have collaborated on the design. Good luck with your research!
