Enzo Bonafe, Antonio Meccariello, Vass all have a galway style boot they could most likely make in a woman's size. https://www.meccarielloshoes.it/product/made-to-order-bimaterial/

The pattern. One is a split toe the other is not.
Politely ask if you may return the tie on your dime. I do not accept returns but if a buyer asks to return an item I will allow them to provided the item is returned in the same condition and they pay return shipping.
I'm thinking that someone like Rozsnyai could handle this request, or perhaps another Hungarian or Italian shoemaker. I'd have to ask. 
Without the heel pad stamp you'll have a hard time doing so. Though I doubt you'll get any extra pull from the Ben Silver name if you're planning on selling them online. The lack of the heel pad stamp leads me to believe this pair was not bad for Ben Silver. Check out a few of the examples of the Ben Silver split toe tassels to make sure it is the same pattern, there is a pair on ebay right now, albeit with a different model number. (Again probably means this was not a Ben...
Hello, This split toe tassel design I believe is a Ben Silver model. They have done it in two or three colors including a spectator tassel with white a white suede vamp. Within the last year I contacted Ben Silver about the 6040 model and they could not tell me what last it is on, though I assume it to be the aberdeen like the standard calf and shell tassels.
As far as I know Meermin's shell line is gy-1 construction but use the soles form the LM line. All the soles are pre stamped, similar to how Allen Edmonds JR soles are all pre stamped with "shell cordovan" even though they are used on other shoes like their exotics.
I've dealt with this situation before. I asked for combined shipping prior to paying for both items. The seller said no, I paid anyways. Seller shipped combined. I asked for a refund totaling the difference, which the seller complied with. I would ask for the difference to be refunded to you, if the seller declines, escalate through ebay. As others have pointed out there are a few avenues you could take if you wanted to pursue further.
I have a wide collection of cordovan shoes and boots, I find cordovan to be at least as water resistant as equivalent thickness calf or cow leathers of a variety of tannages. But that is besides the point. Ultimately it's about enjoying the style and liking the construction method. Using that logic, there is little reason for a veltdschoen boot at all when one could purchase modern footwear designed specifically for water resistance.
