An unusual little, 19th century, folk art snuff box in the form of a shoe.

This is a table top snuff box of a small size, a hand crafted piece.

Hand carved from ebonised wood which has been stained black with a carved lift top lid set with a small brass button knop.

The base has inlaid studding as does the front of the shoe, there is an inlaid letter V at the front and shoe laces.

The top of the shoe holds the snuff and has a shallow recess.

This box is surely a labour of 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:
1.25" width
