Wicker Trunk and Riding Boots

These vintage french riding boots and the french wicker trunk are currently available at the Woolloongabba store.  I love that these two pairs of boots, with the original wooden boot-stays, look like two different body shapes side by side ... one curvaceous and one lean and straight!

On these ones there is a stamped detail in french on each individual wooden sections of the boot stays - "G" or "D" - gauche (left) and droit (right).  A lovely detail in an old script.

Just so the pieces were not jumbled when the wearer was hurriedly getting out of the boots.  It's these very simple but practical touches I love on items from a bygone era......

For ideas on how these come up beautifully in hallways, I'll post more images tomorrow.
