Black Cast Aluminum High Top Victorian Style Shoe Match Holder.
This unique vintage match holder appears to be made of cast aluminum and is shaped to resemble a high-top Victorian style shoe or boot with 6 raised buttons on the side. Tops of “buttons” are painted white; otherwise it's solid black.
In excellent condition with no flaws and very minimal paint loss. Embossed marking on the bottom reads, “EMIG P1".
Measures 4-5/8-inches tall, including the 1-5/8-inches high heel; overall length is 5-3/8-inches long from heel to toe.
Shoes like this were typically used to hold long matches but there are many other ways to use it, such as a display item, pencil or pen holder, even a small flower vase!
