Unusual Child's Ornate Sterling Shoe Horn

Presenting an unusual and hard to find child's ornate sterling shoe horn. Victorian and Edwardian children, particularly those of the upper class, received gifts and objects that were the exact duplicate of their parents. I have had complete sewing boxes, hats, shoes, manicure sets, posey holders but this is the first time, I have found a child's shoe horn. As you can see from the photos, the scale of the shoe horn is appropriate for a child's shoe. It measures a mere 5 1/2" long and the sterling top is decorated with a big belly Putto. It is English made and you can see the hallmarks but their is also a registry number as well. The registry number indicates 1905-1910 date. Condition is very good. I suspect that this shoe horn is a survivor from a glove box set which would have had shoe and glove buttonhooks and possibly a glove stretcher -- those were the days !!
