1940s Shoe Trees, Satin and Lace with Original Box

1940s Shoe Trees, Satin and Lace with Original Box

These shoe trees (or shoe stretchers, shoe stays, shoe lasts) were popular in the 20's and 30's, but we're dating these to approximately vintage 1940's. They're quite functional, with a flexible metal strip covered in ruched pink and blue satin, tipped with pink painted wooden ends, and finished off satin rosettes and gold metallic stitching. And while we're not sure it's the original box, it's the right size and quite pretty.

LABEL: Made in USA

COLOR: Baby blue, baby pink, gold metallic thread. Box is blue and silver. Tissue paper is light blue.

MATERIAL: Wood, metal, satin fabric. Cardboard and tissue.

Length: 11 1/2 in. (29 cm)
Width: 2 in. (5 cm) at widest point.
Box: 17 x 3 x 1 in. (43 x 7.5 x 2.5 cm)

CONDITION: Very good to excellent. One is in perfect shape, the other has a couple of dings in the paint on each wooden end. The fabric is in excellent shape. The box has a bit of a dent in the top and there's a small tear on one side. There is a very floral talc scent, which is pretty, but be careful if you have scent allergies!
