Pretty piece of old silver and practical too!. The shoe horn measures 7 3/4" long. The handle is hallmarked with the Birmingham mark and date letter 'e' lower case for 1904. There are cupid heads on the end of the handle. There is a very small split right near the end, but it is tiny. General condition is good for this period. The shaft is steel marked 'English make' There are some corrosion marks which have been polished out. This piece has many years of practical use still left. Measures 7" total the handle is about 2 1/2" of that.
