Hand carved foot- probably an old shoe form. Narrow form for making shoes for either foot. Old cobbler's shoe form for making or repairing shoes.
Was originally taller, including some of the ankle portion of the foot, but the hole that was drilled for a hanger created a split, and upper portion split off. New hanger hole was drilled and it continued to be used. Split happened a long time ago, as the split is weathered with patina.
Mostly flat bottom and narrow toe box. Bottom shows a lot of wear from years of use making shoes or setting soles.
Measures about 3" wide at ball of foot, and about 8 3/4" long. About 2 " high. Squared toe. Condition is good for it's age. It could be over 100 years old.
Would be great displayed on at wall or shelf with other old wooden items or foot shapes!
