A charming pair of early 19th-century children's shoe lasts/moulds.

English origin. Both bear the stamp "5".

Formed from treen and used by a cobbler/shoemaker to make shoes.

The shoe last is the starting point of every shoe design and has been called “the heart of the shoe.” The last is the centre of the entire shoemaking process, in which the shoemaker starts with the last and then builds the shoe out from there.

The shape of the last determines the fit, performance, ergonomics, and style of a shoe,

Provenance - Found within Norfolk, England.

Condition - Good as per the images. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.

Size - Length of each last 14 cm ( 5 1/2")
