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 slide action lid, it has a slim rectangular mother of pearl inset on the front.

The base has inlaid studding as does the front of the shoe, there is an inlaid letter A at the front in fancy script, possibly the initial of someone who owned it.

We have a collection of these snuff boxes all from the same home, a little group of family heirlooms.

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.
