antique primitive wooden shoe shine box, chippy red paint



One of the oldest I've seen, no date but I'd guess the 1940s
Primitive shoe shine box with heeled form on the top
All wood, including form
Two little storage cubbies make this a great home or shop display piece
Chippy red paint and great patina
Foraged in New Haven, CT
Box measures 12" H, 7 1/2" D, 6 1/2" W (measurements do not include shoe form on the top)
