Found in the English town of Newark and absolutely charming...antique black forest match holder and striker in the form of an old cobbled shoe. The detail on this is amazing - wonderfully tactile. Notice the cobbles on the bottom and the split in the sole! Matches stand up inside, with striker on the side. This will look great on your hearth or mantle. Measures 4.75 inches long, 2.5 inches tall. Great condition. Circa 1890.
