Tiggy & Pip is a vintage home décor shop by mother and son décor and interior design loving duo, Tiggy and Pip Coudray.
With a shared love of all things French and vintage we opened our shop in 2011.
Based in France, between Cognac and La Rochelle, we source unusual items from recent French and European history. Everyday French household items from the 1880's to 1980's which, although at one time were plentiful, are now increasingly rare and collectible. We source specialist props for films/photo shoots and interior designers. Many of our 'finds' are currently on display in a number of top New York restaurants and Hollywood apartments.
This is an antique wooden shoe stretcher, from the 1920's. It would make an ideal dressing room or laundry room accessory.
A lovely decorative item, perfect for walk in closets. It would look great styled on a vintage shoe rack or as a display prop for a vintage shoe store.
It is in great condition, its screw rod, which rotates to extend the width of the shoe and thus stretch it to the desired size, still works perfectly. Made from beech wood it will have seen much action in the cobblers workshop over the years. It has a rich patina from years of genuine use and has a smooth tactile quality. The screw and tap have some mild signs of rust, which adds to it's charm and authenticity.
It's overall length is approx. 38cms / 15" long.
It is 10cms/ 4" (at it's widest) and weighs 800gms/ 1.7lbs.
