Colorful Shoehorn

During the Victorian Age artistic and expensive shoehorns were symbols of wealth and stature, as commoners relied on unadorned ones of rigid common materials

The invention of plastic gave birth to the most colorful shoehorns in history.  Those of the Roaring 20's reflect the shoehorn's most colorful period
