This was a nice find in the basement of our family house, neatly pack away. Sadly looks like someone in our family tried to repair it (shown in pic). Still a find old item from days gone past. This whimsical item was made we believe for children to have their shoes shine on, much like (I remember) the old barber shop horse chairs for children. Even with the repair it is still in good condition (price is lower because of the repair that was done). Measures around 7 inches wide and around 7 inches tall (from the top of the shoe rest, toe area). Fairly heavy hence the shipping. A whimsical addition to one's shoe shine collection, cast iron collection or even just as a conversation piece.
