This is a black, cast iron shoe stand that appears to have been used by cobblers who made or repaired shoes. It stands at a height of 15" with the shoe piece attached. The shoe detaches from the stand and appears to be the size of what would've been used to make children's shoes. I have attached a picture of the item.
