Bottle in the form of a shoe, Anonymous, c. 1675 - c. 1700

l 30cm. More details

This striking object is a cross between a whale and a shoe with a high heel. It lacks only the opening for the foot. In fact, it is actually a bottle made of leather: the tail is the stopper. Because of its shoe shape, the bottle is thought to have been a showpiece or masterpiece for a cobblers’ guild.
