Shoe Stretcher. Cottrell Holborn Hill London. Wood Brass Boot Last c1820.

Stock Number: CSS2644


This highly decorative antique wooden shoe stretcher which has a wonderful rich golden patina has 2 parts that are hinged, have brass fittings and a metal screw mechanism with brass handle for tightening and enlarging the wooden last to stretch a shoe.

This Georgian stretcher is of wonderful quality, dates from c1820 and the brass handle is marked with the maker's details of Cottrell. Holborn Hill, London.

This interesting and over engineered piece looks great on display and is in full working order but I'm not sure it would be suitable to use as it would have been made to measure. Would make a super item for a shoe shop, vintage clothes shop or a nice collectable item.
