A spectacular example of one of our favorite old French tobacco items, the hand carved shoe snuffs that date to earliest 1800s or slightly into 1700s. This one is in very nice condition, a little old wood issues natural to the material and only visible in greatly enlarged photos for your review. A beauty with intricate tiny pins serving as the nails, trim, in typical pique fashion. The boot is a slide-top that has no monogram on the small cartouche perched there on lid. You could certain have your own monogrammed, still. A charming petite one at 4", you can see it along with others we have offered separately in that final photo. Don't miss your own tabletop collection of these rare items.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. The sliding lid is smoothly and perfectly working, no warp or sticking. The boot is remarkably well preserved and really I am not seeing more than a couple of the tiny pin or nails gone, but look there along the bottom of soul and heel to see any I've found as I polished it. Also, a little old wood issues natural to the material and only visible in greatly enlarged photos for your review. Beautiful old wood grain! This one is 4" long, 1.25" wide and 1 5/8" high.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time.
