2305:: Antique Oval Fluted Boot Scraper Lyre-Form Cast Iron ca.1820 American. FYI: A lyre is a musical instrument. The lyre form was widely used in 18th and 19th century decorative objects from silver tea strainers to armchairs and boot-scrapers.
Very Good Condition. Rusted (of course). The opening on one of the long sides is to let water drain from melted snow. Yes, I have used it many years and it works just fine. A wire brush and a bit of Johnson’s paste wax would do it wonders.
