A most unique Vintage Lucite shoe horn is presented in clear Lucite!
Circa 1940’s-50’s, this useful and decorative Lucite shoe horn measures 8 inches in length. The handle has wonderful molded detailing on either side with a hole in the center top, where you could hang it for display. At its widest, the bottom of the vintage Lucite shoe horn measures 1 ½ inches wide. The handle, at the widest portion, measures just shy of an inch. It will look fabulous displayed with other vintage vanity items or as stated, hung perhaps. It is as useful today as it was during the era of production.
Lucite was first introduced to the marketplace by DuPont in 1937, and is the common name associated with an acrylic resin. In its original and basic form, Lucite is clear, but it was often tinted in a wide range of colors and tones. After World War II, Bakelite was no longer cost effective to produce, but Lucite was and still is today.
This vintage Lucite shoe horn is in perfect condition, free of any damage whatsoever so as cracking, crazing, etc.
