Napoleonic what-not…

As a former shoe curator and shoe author I do get more than my fair share of shoe-shaped objects as gifts: Christmas ornaments, paper clip holders, pie servers, tape dispensers, as well as shoe calendars, date books and note cards… but nobody has given me a Napoleonic era shoe-shaped cribbage board and domino set from c. 1800-1815! This lovely¬†however is out of my price range… but thanks for the link Liz – it’s the thought that counts!
