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.

Good used condition overall, some very light surface wear, general signs of use and ageing, some wear to the abalone, see photos.

Approx measurements:
1.5" width
