this is a totally charming, homemade, somewhat crude shoeshine box. the dark green paint is very chippy and distressed; the curved feet have been re-glued by us, we hope to stay. there is a shoe holder on the top and the box is joined together by a series of very small rectangular pieces (we'd call them dove-tail joints but they aren't that shape...) it measures about 10 inches high by 7 inches across and 9 inches long. it has metal hinges and half of the latch is missing.

this was maybe a shop project from many years ago, a gift from grandfather to grandson, son to father....who knows? we do know that it adds a great deal of charm to a rustic or cottage decor, or could be the start of a brand new career for the fledgling shoe-shiner.

if we have overestimated the actual shipping and insurance cost by more than $2, we will refund the overage to your Paypal account right away.
