I have a couple of these shoe forms, which were used for manufacturing chidren's shoes in New England shoe factories back in the 1950's.  These forms could also be used for holding thin candles, or for holding small picture frames.

I have a wooden shoe form too but I don't think mine has that slot. Mine has been embellished with a sweetly painted posy of violets on the top of the shoe last. Posted: 12:42 pm on July 27th
