This is a great antique leg brace. I'm not sure on an exact year, maybe late Victorian or a little later. Judging from the shoe it is definitely early 1900s at least.

It is a smaller size, but not a small child's...probably a teen or a small size woman's brace/shoe.

The metal on the brace is rusty and dirty (but that makes it look so much more creepy) and the cuff is dirty as well...the buckle and all is still there and very cool. The metal still moves. It attaches to the shoe by going down the sides and then a leather (?) strap goes around the metal and around the shoe to hold it on. You can see this better in the photo's.

The shoe is awesome but very old. It can't stand on its own anymore because the bottom sole is very worn (has a not-quite-all-the-way-through hole on the upper side) and the heel is really worn and chipped which is why it can't stand alone anymore. The shoe is stuffed with newspaper that I think has been in there a while. I've opted to leave it in the shoe for fear the shoe will fold in on itself without the padding. The shoe is, as expected, dirty and dusty.

A very cool old medical piece...these are getting harder and harder to get because they have become quite popular with the decorating crowd.

Measures: 14.5" tall, 9.5" long (the shoe).

Thanks!
