This is believed to be a Victorian item from the end of the 19th or begining of the 20th Century. This miniature shoe would have been used to carry Snuff or what the British called "Lucifer Matches". It has a hinged lid with decoration on it. As this is made of pewter, the decoration is a bit subtle. Please, spend a minute and inspect the photos that I tried to take under a couple of different lighting conditions. I hope that this little gem meets with your approval. If so, you will become the new sole proprietor...
