Victorian Era Treen Snuff Boxes in the Shape of Shoes

Shoe-shaped Snuff Boxes

Treen is the name given to small household items made from wood, rather than made from metal, ceramics or glass, and to differentiate the items from wooden furniture. As a big fan of shoes and boots, I love images of Victorian treen snuff boxes that mimic shoes. Here is a selection of images for your edification.
