Antique wooden shoe forms known as a shoe last are how cobblers made shoes long ago. Which shoe last a cobbler used was determined by the size, toe box, and heel height desired for the finished shoe. Old shoe forms with their unique patina, shape and size have been repurposed in today's world for great shelf decor. Frog Hollow vintage decor creates a whimsical, eye-catching vignette with the simple addition of an illustration of a field pixie mounted in the shoe last. Items included are-
- antique wooden shoe form- 9 1/2" x 3" x 4"
- Field Piskie illustration card
- small placecard holder
- a professionally styled photo to keep as reference
The majority of the items used for the vignettes are antiques or thrift store finds and not reproductions. Ironstone dishes and other antiques have the built in character of crazing, minor chips, browning and other signs of use through the years. This authentic look of age and wear all lends itself to the romance of french country or the comfort of farmhouse bringing character and charm to your home.
