Secure Payments By
An attractive and unusual, 19th century, folk art snuff box in the form of a shoe. This is a table top snuff box of a good size, a hand crafted piece. Hand carved from wood which has been painted black with a carved lift top lid set with a small rectangular abalone inset. The base has inlaid brass studding as does the front of the shoe, there is an inlaid letter T at the back, possibly the initial of someone who owned it. The top of the shoe holds the snuff and has a shallow recess. This box is surely a labour if love and lots of time and dedication has gone into it, a beautiful representation of 19th century folk art. Any questions or queries please contact us.
