Spectacular Victorian Wooden Shoe Shaped Inkwell

Faith, Hope and Charity created in brass inlay adorn the top of this one of a kind double inkwell. The work on this piece is something seldom seen. The entire shoe is inlaid with brass designs that are reminiscent of classical Indian art done for the English market in the late 1800s. The top swings open to reveal two brass ink pots. When closed, it reminds us of the very finest shoe snuff boxes so popular with collectors. From heel to toe the shoe measures eight and one fourth inches. It stands three and one half inches in height.

Whether you collect shoes, inkwells or works of art, this is the best of its kind.
