Shoehorn: A Beautiful Necessity

Every respectful shoe requires a shoehorn.
I came across this old piece walking through Blue Elephant. Made out of solid brass with a horse head as its handle it is not only useful, but also beautiful. I placed it by the entrance, where the shoes go on and off. A sucker for pretty objects, I admire how this piece adds old-world charm to our old-world house.
I suddenly feel very proper. My old shoehorn from Aldo is demoted to the mudroom.
