Description

This is a good size table snuff shoe dating from around 1840/1850, a late georgian or early victorian example. a nicely carved shoe with outlining for the heel and a well defined sole with a pointed finish. the lid is well fitted and opens and closes easily, a bit too big to be carried in the pocket and the lid design is such that snuff would fall out, so definitely a novelty table snuff. the lid has been carved to accept the initials e.m. and I am sure that this is not a later alteration. condition is very good for the age, with no chips or splits to the wood, the lid lies flat with no gaps, the polish has bubbled a little on the surface which can be seen in the pics. all in all a nice example that has that added extra with the initials, has been used with remnants of snuff inside at toe-end. postage tracked and insured is free in the uk.
