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.
