From the story The Girl with the Red-Rose Slippers

Down over the courtyard swooped the eagle and dropped the rose-red slipper of Rhodopis into Pharaoh’s lap.

The people cried out in surprise when they saw this, and Amasis too was much taken aback. But, as he took up the little rose-red slipper and admired the delicate workmanship and the tiny size of it, he felt that the girl for whose foot it was made must indeed be one of the loveliest in the world.
