Small feet seem to be the sign of all girls, but when we see their feet exposed in the Qing Dynasty palace drama, they are all of normal size, which many people think may not conform to the historical facts, but in fact, this is the right way to open the feet of concubines in the Qing Dynasty palace. Because before the Qing Dynasty, women had no tradition of wrapping their feet. Moreover, after the Qing Dynasty ruled China at that time, women's foot binding was seen, which was considered to be a violation of nature. Women's foot binding was strictly prohibited, so the girls in the group did not have foot binding.
All the friends watching Qing palace opera must have seen "flower pot bottom". For example, there is an episode in "New Pearl return grid". The little swallow, a folk girl, is not used to the flower pot bottom worn by the grid people, and falls in front of the queen directly. The picture is "too beautiful". Qianlong has looked at the problem directly. What are the pictures of the shoes that are so difficult to wear? There are so many exquisite in it? Let's go on Look!
There is a saying about the origin of flowerpot soled shoes. In the past, when Manchu women sent logistics materials to their husbands who were fighting in the front line, they learned the appearance of white cranes when crossing a muddy pond and tied high branches of trees on their shoes, so that they could not be soaked in water. Later, after the Qing army entered the pass, the concubines of the imperial concubines gradually inherited such shoes and became more and more exquisite, and finally became the flower pot bottom shoes today.
"Flowerpot bottom", full name of "flowerpot bottom shoes", also known as "flag shoes", is a kind of shoes worn by Manchu women in the Qing Dynasty. This shoe is more difficult to wear than thick shoes. It is usually made of wood, with the sole height of 5-10 cm and the maximum of 25 cm. It is thin at the top and wide at the bottom, flat at the front and round at the back. Because the marks it steps on the ground are especially like horseshoes, it is also called "horseshoe".
As we all know, the emperor has always said that "there are three thousand beauties in the harem". Even if there are not so many as 3000 people exaggerating, there are still dozens or hundreds of them. The emperor will not remember the names of all people. At this time, the "flowerpot bottom shoes" will play a role.
With the development of the times, women's "flowerpot bottom shoes" in the Qing Dynasty become more and more exquisite. There will be all kinds of embroidery, carving, beading, and even small spikes hanging on the toe of the shoes. In addition, these shoes are usually worn by young and middle-aged nobles (flat shoes are often worn by the elderly). Therefore, the shoes worn by the concubines in the later period are regulated according to their status. If the emperor forgot the identity and status of the woman in front of him, he could quickly respond by looking at the shoes.
