An attractive and unusual, 19th century, Scottish folk art snuff box in the form of a shoe or boot.

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 brass button knop.

The base has inlaid studding as does the front of the shoe, there is an inlaid letter J at the front enclosed in a heart.

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, hand made for family members and kept in the same family. 

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