Welcome to our shop. This is a very unusual old shoe last, form, cobbler's stay. It's about 8 1/2"" long and has an original hole drilled in the top with a brass insert that will hold a taper candle.
An old fashioned Santa Claus is hand painted across the whole toe area. It's very well done, but not signed.
The last itself is in very good condition and is marked on the bottom with letters and numbers: L 891N, 1, 494 and some penciled numbers. The bottom has wear areas.
I cut down a white and a burgundy candle and tied them with a burgundy ribbon to show what a unique candle holder it makes.
Something really special for your Christmas décor. Thanks for stopping by and please check our other items for more treasures.
