Kensington House Antiques
Unusual Victorian copper ladies' button-up boot. The Victorians often placed these along their mantles for purely decorative purposes. Most examples are made of brass, but this piece is entirely copper. Another nice touch is the applied scalloped pattern along the front edge of the boot and the white brass buttons.
Origin: England or America, ca. 1880. Condition: excellent. Size: 5" tall.
