This oversized, antique boot scraper, with a later black enamel finish, was fashioned with a rectangular base, having an acanthus leaf pattern around the rim. The raised scraper is supported by highly stylized, scroll, acanthus and palm designs. Of nice heavy construction, it is both a decorative and useful piece.
