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.
