A hard wood shoe last in wonderful vintage condition, with the original cast iron stretcher. Lasts like this one date from the 1940s. The last opens on its hinge as the stretcher is turned, thus stretching the shoe.
It can be used for its intended purpose, but the patina on this one is so smooth and such a lovely colour that it would also make a great decorative object.
