An attractive and unusual, 19th century, 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.
