GEORGIAN BOOT SCRAPER
set in chamfered yorkstone block
H 36cm (14") W 28 x 28cm (11")
A joint effort one day some 200 years ago : the blacksmith hand-forged the iron, beating out the plate and two pillars, scrolling them, then mortice-jointing the three parts together. The stonemason, cut square and polished a york stone block, chamfered the edges and hand-drilled holes to match the iron to be inserted and set with molten lead. Yorkshire provenance. A lovely example of simple, classic Georgian styling from the early 1800's and as robust, attractive and practical to use now at the doorstep as then.
