This is a rare mahogany boot-form box for a pair of boot jacks. The box is precisely carved in the form of a boot and opens to reveal spaces for the boot jacks, which are present. The box opens and fastens on brass hinges and closes firmly with two fitted brass closures. When removed from the box, the folded tools have a handle which can be swung at right angles to the pull to make a boot jack. The ends of the handles are different and one can be used as a button hook and the other for additional purposes. This item would have been used for travel and possibly even as a Campaign item. Its condition is excellent for both the timber and the steel jacks. Length 11.75 ins (30cm), top width 2.75 ins (6.5cm). Weight 522 grams. This item appears in my book, "Antique Boxes, Inside and Out" on page 387. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $54.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper.
