A highly collectable matched pair of salesman sample rubber boots each maker marked CANDEE and each remaining in excellent original condition, pliable with no flaking, tearing or other issues yet offering good evidence of age and originality. Illustrated here with a quarter for size comparison, these miniature boots were intended as a sales sample for boots by L. Candee & Co., Rubber Works established in New Haven, Connecticut in 1842. Leverett Candee (1795-1863) manufactured the new-fangled rubber boots under licenses held by Charles Goodyear and was first in the world to manufacture rubber footwear. An interesting collectable in a number of Americana categories. (see: Bart & Hickcox: India Rubber & Gutta Percha Goods 1860 catalog) Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. A simple key word in lower case works best. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !!
