1930s - 1950s Vintage Bakelite And Steel Metal Adjustable Shoe Trees

A pair of bakelite shoe trees with toe and heel sections joined by a metal bar and a compression spring.
Believed to be early to mid twentieth century
The toe sections are split into two halves along their length and can be adjusted for with by means of a screw.
The two halves are set on two compression springs.
Half way along the metal bar and just below the compression spring' which fits into the domed heel portion of the shoe, is the shaped finger hold to assist with the adjustment of the spring to allow it to be fitted easily into the shoe.

Shoe trees help to minimise the appearance of creases in the leather and ensure that shoes maintain their shape while they are not being worn.
