Set of Ten 19th Century English Victorian Brass Chimney Good Luck Shoes or Boots

Date: 19th Century
PRICE: $1650
Dimensions: H 16cm W 13cm D 4cm
Shipping: $100

Four sets and two single pieces of English Victorian brass chimney ornaments or "good luck" shoes.

What a lovely collection of shiny shoes don't you think? Let me tell you a little bit about them,
during the Victorian period in England, it was fashionable to have a pair of "good luck" brass shoes on your mantel (fireplace), they would been given to you as a wedding gift.

Two sets were definitely match stick holders or candlesticks.

One set looks like they would have been used 'on' something as a stopper (bottle, candlestick).

The biggest is heavy enough to use as paper weight or maybe even as a small bookend.

Very pretty collection.
