This great piece of Western décor is a red clay sculpture of a cowboy boot. Imposing in size and detail, the boot features a buckled strap across the instep and "tooling" on the vamp and a "stitched" welt. The interior is unglazed, revealing the dark red cay and finger marks of the potter. The outside of the boot is glazed in denim blue and distressed for a weathered look. It weighs a substantial 3 pounds 14 ounces and is 13 inches long from heel to toe. The height is 9 1/2 inches to the very top of the boot and the interior is 8 inches deep.
The bottoms of the heel and sole of the boot are "corrugated" and partially glazed. There are 4 felt circles for protection from scratching on smooth surfaces. In one of our photos, we show a closeup of the heel bottom, with what looks like a mark: "le". Other than the distressing, which is intentional, there are no chips or cracks that we could find, just some slight wear on the bottom. We suggest dried or silk flowers or plants if you intend to use this as a vase or planter, since the interior is not glazed. It really needs no embellishment to stand out alone or with other decorative Western/Southwestern pieces.
