Antique Cast Iron Boot JackAntique Cast Iron Boot Jack   A nice antique cast iron boot jack with a great design and form.   Note the double star tail.

Fine . . . . . . $175.00     SOLD!







Iridescent Cast Iron Beetle / Cricket  Boot JackIridescent Cast Iron Beetle / Cricket Boot Jack    This cast iron Beetle boot jack has great detail in the super fine casting and a finish that is almost electric.  I am not sure what it is, but we are going to call this the Lightning Bug.  A beautiful piece! 

 Fine . . . . . . $150.00     SOLD!






Cast Iron Beetle / Cricket Boot Jack with AdvertisingCast Iron Beetle / Cricket Boot Jack with Advertising    This is a good looking boot jack.  It's marked W H Van Dusen, which I imagine was the name of a shoe store or shoe manufacturer looking to remind you where to buy your next pair of boots each time you take the old ones on and off.  The casting and condition are super!

 Very Good . . . . . . $195.00    SOLD!






Blond Nellie Cast Iron Boot Jack"Blond Nellie" Cast Iron Boot Jack     This one is kinda cute.  She has everything a fellow could want. 

 Good +. . . . . . $125.00    SOLD!








Antique Folding Boot JackAntique Folding Boot Jack  This is a triple-folder.  The patent info is cast into the cover.  It's nice and compact, but I'd bet your boots to mine that the delicate casting meant not too many have survived.

Very Good . . . . . . $295.00     SOLD!








Victorian Decorated Cast Iron Boot JackVictorian Decorated Cast Iron Boot Jack   Here is an antique cast iron boot jack with a great looking decoration much like Victorian hardware. Note that it is a double ender for different size boots.  Also note the reinforcing cast into the base on the underside.  A quality piece obviously made by a quality outfit from the Victorian era---Charles Parker perhaps, or some other well known and respected maker of cast iron products from the 19th century.  The "Beetle" form bootjack may be common, but this stylized version with decoration that resembles Victorian Hardware is anything but and displays a quality of casting not often seen.  Different and very nice!

 Fine . . . . . . $150.00     SOLD!




Antique Cast Iron Boot JackAntique Double End Cast Iron Boot Jack   This too looks to be English.  It has a boot puller at each end, a somewhat unusual feature.  The casting depicts a Roman looking warrior with headgear on.  Different!

Fine . . . . . . $195.00     SOLD!






Antique Cast Iron Floral Design Boot JackAntique Cast Iron Floral Design Boot Jack   This bootjack has a lot of decoration cast into the top.  I assume the hole in the tail is for hanging it up.  Most boot jacks, but not all have this feature.  Great character.

Good . . . . . . $295.00     SOLD!









Patented Mechanical Antique Boot JackPatented Mechanical Antique Boot Jack  This interesting cast iron must have been designed to be used in a place where boots were  tough to get off or were very dirty, and you needed all the help you could get without getting dirty or tired.   It has a nice casting, and is in  nice condition! 

Good +. . . . . . $295.00     SOLD!





Twisted Snakes Figural Brass Boot Jack Twisted Snakes Figural Brass Boot Jack  This cast brass bootjack has an interesting figural theme of two twisted or intertwined snakes.  The two holes between the bodies have the interesting feature of sawtooth-like teeth, much like a corn sheller might have.  This bootjack came out of a farm / engine show in Iowa about 15 years ago and has been in this collection since then.  It is a nice casting and has good detail.  Is it a combo tool corn sheller or isn't it? 

Fine . . . . . . $395.00     SOLD!





Figural Brass Boot Jack / Vines & LeavesFigural Brass Boot Jack / Vines & Leaves  This cast brass bootjack is the same design as the one above but polished rather than painted.  Note the markings on the bottom.  Looks like A. B. Seebass and Offenbach, an outfit I have never heard of.   It is a nice casting and has good detail.  A beautiful piece!  

 Fine . . . . . . $195.00     SOLD!






Antique Cast Iron Boot Jack / Combo Tool / Wrench / Corn ShellerAntique Cast Iron Boot Jack / Combo Tool / Can Opener /  Wrench / Nail Puller / Corn Sheller?  This is a very unusual form for a bootjack.  A combo tools that incorporates a wrench, can opener, hammer, tack puller and what could well be used as a corn sheller in the center cutout portion.  It might just be part of the wrench idea, but those graduated steps sure look similar to some early hand held corn shellers I have seen.    

Fine . . . . . . $495.00     SOLD!






Primitive Cast Iron Heart Motif Boot JackPrimitive Cast Iron Heart Motif Boot Jack   This early double end cast iron bootjack has an interesting design with a different size jack at each end, and the pivot in the middle.    It has a very primitive look to it and has great character.

Good . . . . . . $175.00     SOLD!





Naughty Nellie Cast Iron Boot Jack"Naughty Nellie" Cast Iron Boot Jack   Here she is again with her special red outfit on that includes polka dot garters.  Ready to be put into use. 

 Good +. . . . . . $95.00     SOLD!







Nipple Nellie Cast Iron Boot Jack"Nipple Nellie" Cast Iron Boot Jack     This Nellie bootjack has a one piece outfit on pulled down just enough to reveal a bit of nipple.  The paint is worn, but she is not.  Nice form, nice detail, and nice -----. 

 Good +. . . . . . $75.00     SOLD!
