Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this magnificent antique solid silver gilt model of a shoe made in Chester 1913 with the marks of George Nathan & Ridley Hayes.Impressive in size and presence, this shoe is larger than normal miniatures/pin cushion style silver shoe models and is almost the size of a real-life/little girl's shoe. In addition to its proportions, the fully gilt surface contributes to its overall splendour and magnificence upon viewing and handling. Due to its accurate and detailed craftsmanship, the shoe's design can be truly appreciated upon handling and viewing it from different angles - even the sole and heel of the shoe are made with care and feature elegant curves. An applied ribbon to the front and the intricate repoussé work along all the sides completes the overall design.The interior of the shoe has been made into a bowl/box which allows for small objects to be held within. While this piece would be a fabulous collectable item and a display piece, it may also benefit from some creative uses such as storing your jewellery, serving small sweets or even as a small flower vase.
Whether be it a wonderful gift to a shoe lover who may already have an extensive collection or as a part of antique interior decor, this fabulous model is bound to be a very unique and unparalleled gift.A set of English hallmarks are present on the side of the shoe, hidden within the intricate foliate motifs.
