This old shoe horn is plated tin with embossed advertising for the Chicago Mail Order Company. It reads; Don’t Break Your Shoes at Heel - Always Use This Shoe Horn - Chicago Mail Order Co. Outfitter to All the Family. Small tokens of appreciation like free shoehorns such as this use to be commonplace when making the purchase of a pair of shoes.
It measures about 3 5/8” in length to the break for the curve and about 1 ½” at the widest point and is in good original condition with minimal wear. There is some lost plating, especially on the back so there is a little spotted rust.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
