Antique Revolutionary War Era Man's Wood Boot Form
This is a rare 18th century men's boot form that was hand-carved from a tree branch. The main section ofthe form is in two sections but looks to have been made from a single branch with two smaller branches that form a 'U' shape. The larger branch was cut down to the exact size of the man's leg and the boot last (that is formed around the foot) is a third piece of the puzzle. The base of the form is made from a fir plank and the nail that holds the boot form upright is a rosehead nail as can be seen in the pictures above. The patina is amazing and this form was for a riding boot. This is a rare and unusual boot form that was found in central New Hampshire. It is 18" high x 9.5" long.
