What is it?:
If the shoe fits ...
Another one out of the box for you to ponder.
THIS week’s mystery item is an easy one. Clearly it is a shoe, a solid wooden shoe from back in the good old days when men were real men and shoes were made of hardwood. No? OK, fine. This piece from the Victorian era was discovered at the Ring Road Antiques Centre.
It appears to have a sliding lid, but what would its owner put inside? People of all social classes may have used a box such as this.
While this one is fairly simple one, these items were also made in highly decorative designs and from expensive materials.
