This is a vintage card dealers shoe in excellent condition. The shoe is unusual in that it will hold cards that measure up to about 2” in width (most modern decks measure 2 1/2” wide). I am including a deck of Austrian Piatnik & Sons Patience playing cards and a deck of Spanish Bergamasche playing cards both of which fit perfectly. The Piatnick cards measure 1-11/16" X 2-5/8", the Bergamasche cards measure 3 5/8” by 2”.
The shoe itself has a beautiful burl-wood finish on top of a smooth hard plastic base. The only marking on the shoe is a faint gold letter “Q” on the front panel. Overall size is 2 5/8” wide X 8” long X 4” tall
