Those of you that put money on me caving in and doing the Mindum shoe horn catalogue in 3 days, please go and collect your winnings. You know I had to. The WordPress interface didn’t work very well with the wide table involved, so I’ve done it as a pdf and hidden it on my website.
The links on the year go to photographs I’ve been able to source, the links on references go to the reference if it exists online. Notes in italics are quotes from the reference and those in square brackets are my observations.
I’ve been able to identify 18 separate shoe horns and one powder horn by made and decorated by Mindum, there may be more as I avoided counting any I couldn’t positively identify. If you know of any others or have any better photos, please let me know.
