Shoe display stands

We have met Ken Mundy before and seen pictures and information about his shop and work as a cobbler and shoe seller in Market Lavington. (See Ken Mundy’s Shop, Memorabilia from Ken Mundy’s shop and Closed.) Amongst the objects from Ken’s shop, now in Market Lavington Museum, we have these bell shaped items.

They are copper alloy stands, used for displaying ladies’ shoes and date from the early twentieth century, though our curator can remember buying a pair of red shoes from Ken in the early 1970s.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
