Ask a question

This late 19th century boot is quintessentially Victorian.

Carved from a single piece of Whitby jet, it’s far larger than most of its type and is charming from every angle. 

The rose gold top is pleasing, too. 

Pieces like this are sought after by collectors of Whitby jet – fossilised wood a million years in the making that is both light and smooth, so it can be polished to a high shine. 

Or perhaps you know someone who adores shoes?
