Does anyone know how much i should put pairs of Wildsmith hinged shoe trees up for, i know that these are now hard to come by, i think they were overtaken by springed shoe trees.? There antique and are about 40 years old i think.

Suede Split-Toe by Gravati.

Gravati gets very little love on Ebay, but they make a very nice product. I believe this shoe is on the 500 Last.

Are they sized for a particular last? That would help. Trees by themselves don't sell for very much.

If you actually go into business those would actually be good to have on display.

As much craftsmanship as probably went into those... It's just too much brogueing for me.

Yeah i think so too, as would the parchments of previouse customers whos names would be knowen to many. There were some displayed in the shop at some point, Sir Winston Chirchill, Nepolian Boneipard iii, William of Orange and Mell Brooks are amongst them. One thing that my Grandpa did that was rather silly, was that he left all the shoe cabenetts in the shop there, and they totaled around a good few thousand pounds each. He kept the anique chairs that were in there though, theres a museum that asked him if they could have all the parchments and signed shoe trees and other memorabilia that my grandpa has, he said yes, i think that was age showing, but then he told my dad and he was like WHAT!!!!!!!!!! and soon changed his mind about it. My dad was the one who framed all the parchments and dispayed them.

Is that what they're calling it these days? Back in my day, we called it incorrect.

Hello, I tried to sell these on StyleForum a while back, but ended up taking them to ebay, there's a few hours left. The reserve is $200. Thank you for looking!
