Set of Ten 19th Century English Victorian Brass Chimney Good Luck Shoes or Boots
Four sets and two single pieces of English Victorian brass chimney ornaments or "good luck" shoes. What a lovely collection of shiny shoes don't you think? Let me tell you a little bit about them, during the Victorian period in England, it was fashionable to have a pair of "good luck" brass shoes on your mantel (fireplace), they would been given to you as a wedding gift. Two sets were definitely match stick holders or candlesticks. One set looks like they would have been used 'on' something as a stopper (bottle, candlestick). The biggest is heavy enough to use as paper weight or maybe even as a small bookend. Very pretty collection.
